Re: [Deskbar] Unavailable handlers in prefs?

Just to inject a user's perspective, most people would find "Show failed handlers" to be pretty opaque ("What's a handler?"), but perhaps whatever the "error" icon is for the current theme (red circle with white x or whatever) replaces the search icon in the entry field, clicking on that brings up the window with error messages?  Click on a search result/handler selector instead and it goes away, hover mouse pointer over the icon and a tooltip shows up with something like "There were errors in this search - click for details".

Point taken after seeing the google live handler i realize there is need
for such handling.

I propose the following UI discussed with mikkel on IRC:
Current active handler selector:
Note: blah
[Show failed handlers]

You click on it, and it show a list view with each failed handler, along
with a message for the failure, a bit like active handlers have name

Is that a good UI, or maybe we need somthing better ? like having one
single handler list, and only show acive handlers in it, then if a
checkbow is clicked ([X] Show all handlers) the erratic handlers would
be displayed greyed out, with the error replacing the description ?
