I haven't noticed this before, but you are right: the highlight
behaviour is inconsistent. At the moment I'd suggest we try to highlight
everything that is clickable in the panels.
I have noticed this, but I haven't given it a second thought. I think I may have
found a commonality; the applets that has an immediate effect when clicked
lights up on hover, while those that display a menu, slider, etc, does not.
This is not true for all applets, however. The System Monitor applet, for
instance, does not work this way, though a single click will open the System
If it isn't designed that way, I think maybe it should; it makes sense to "warn"
about clicks that has an immediate action. That way, the menuline, volum
control, power manager and FUSA should not light up, since they'll only display
sliders or menus. Launchers, window switchers, show desktop, etc should.
Following this philosophy, I think the clock applet shouldn't light up, since it
doesn't really perform any operations, only displays the calendar. The system
monitor applet, however, should light up.
My two cents;
