Threads merged.

dEnDrOn: Please stick to just this thread for this issue. You also have posts in several other threads on this. Please limit yourself to this thread with this issue unless you get a direct response in the others.

Regarding your PM: I do not personally know how to do what you wish to do. It has not been an issue I have needed to address, so I have not researched it. That being said, I have seen others asking, so there may already be an answer in the forums. Try searching (again).

Beyond that, as Gnome 3 is very extensible via javascript and CSS, perhaps it may be possible to dig into the code, and find a method there.
