What is intriguing with Graeme's user scenario is, why have the users
been ignoring the window which was popping up?

Why were they not updating when the window opened and dismissing it
instead? [not to troll , Just curious.]
Isnt it because the users were instructed to depend on the icon only?
If they were told to update when the update-manager window opens wouldnt
this have been solved?

mpt has explained this change plenty of times on this bug report.
you can see the number of comments he has made , kindly read them.
Not sure how much more it can be explained.

OTOH , the update manager window ,as well, is going to be improved for
Lucid.
