Bug Description

Binary package hint: rhythmbox

In lucid, using the new indicator menus, the "Quit" menu item is right below the "Show Rhythmbox" item.

As the "Show" item is the only way to display a "hidden" rhythmbox, I use it often. I also /miss/ often, so I have to restart rb a lot.

Adding a separator between the two items or moving the "Show" item to the top of the menu should make mis-clicking much less frequent.

I just subscribed to this bug, after killing rhythmbox when I actually wanted to show it.

Do you guys miss the old functionality? In older versions rhythmbox reappeared when you left-clicked on the icon.

Yes I miss. But I think that wasn't just a decision of rhythmbox, but rather of gnome. Almost all current applications use similar interface so it'd be hard to fix that.

IMHO the button should be placed in the top of menu like in transmission.
Solves current problem
Menu is more usable. Most people don't use 'Play' 'Prev' 'Next' buttons since these are accessible from the main window also and there are keyboard shortcuts.
