In the help, we refer to the "Taskbar" as the standalone lSwitcher bar, and

the Taskbar and the Widget, so the label is misleading (implying only Taskbar

I always thought of that tab as "Taskbar - whether standalone or widget",
so no big deal for me.
I see it as better aligning to how we differentiate the Taskbar (proper noun)
and the Widget (proper noun) in the help.
I never used the widget until we started testing stuff. Now, my main system
(T43) runs the Taskbar and my test system (T560) runs the widget, and I can
check for consistent behavior between the two. I guess that's also what made
me notice all the greyed options on the widget-installed system. The notebook
just looks "odd" that way.
The Mouse action page maybe should be #3, so page #2 would be "Filters" for
both the PM popup and whatever taskbar is in use, but Mouse actions for the
taskbars belong in each taskbar tab IMHO -- don't they apply to the
taskbar/widget only, and not the popup?
Indeed, the mouse actions do pertain only to the Taskbar and Widget.
Shouldn't Filters go to the Global tab?
[...]My suggestion is [...]
and splitting the page into two areas:

I agree this would make clearer which settings apply to what taskbar.
However, in the same vein, perhaps the "TaskBar" group could only appear in
the dialog for the taskbar, and be absent from the dialog for the widget,
instead of just grayed out.
I like Gregg's proposal of simply presenting the relevant tab for the
What is not mentioned in the ticket is that it would be more appropriate to
reorder the tabs:
List | Popup | Miscellaneous | About
Why? The Popup is always active, while the taskbar can be disabled, like the
widget -- it won't be active unless you add it to some XCenter.
Hmmm... I hadn't thought of it that way. I tend to think of the Popup as being
a convenience feature, alongside the "main" event (Taskbar or Widget).
Ordering isn't a really big deal to me as compared to better labeling.
