Bug Description

Binary package hint: unity

I keep having the feeling that when I click on an dock icon not already launcher that I didn't click correctly, since the background color fading is very hard to notice and take a while to really notice.

An rolling to the right effect on the icon might better. (OR to be fancy, do it the angry-bird way, bring a copy of the icon more to the left in angle, and launch to the center and make it explode !!! :)

This needs input from the design-team first. Also discussing it on the ayatana mailing-list before coming to launchpad seems like a good idea. That way - after reaching a conclusion there - the feedback from this discussion can be used to provide better input for this bug-report and a potential fix/implementation.
