  Well, it seems like there is a problem with the parsing of the files in
Can you post your ~/.launcher/launcher.db ?

  Elementary doesn't have any spacer concept (like GTK) yet. Hence the
flexible layout. Maybe I'll try the layout widget and see how that works
out. I was actually thinking of keeping the information icons (there's one
for notifications too) on the top line on the left - with the category
selector on the top line right.

Well, a combolist would suit this best. But since there isn't any, I'm using
a hover (I find that hoversel's are v slow). Each button is actually a
button and buttons fit text. So - the only way I know to get the sizes right
is to pad the names with spaces. That isn't such a nice way though - so I
looking for a safer solution.

  Anyone - any ideas?
