deskbar startup state is confusing

Bug Description

Binary package hint: tracker

While testing gutsy amd64 dvd 20071010.2:

When I click on the incomprehensible icon used by the deskbar applet, and type some text in the resulting box, I get two main headings
   Internet-Suche (Internet Search)
   Aktionen (Actions)
under the latter of which we see
   Search for *foo* with Tracker Search Tool

It will be far from clear to the user what the scope of the Tracker search is. The legend should be clarified.

importance: Undecided → Low
status: New → Triaged

Search for XXX with t-s-t is our static handler which will on activation fire up an instance of tracker-search-tool searching for XXX. This one can be disabled in the deskbar options anyway.

The 'Internet Suche' is not tracker handler specific and is a general deskbar-handler, shipped with deskbar.

There is not much room to define what tracker search tool is - one should know about it (e.g. see the tracker-search-tool manpage) and use it (or not) i presume.

Cheers, Marcus
