WRT the toolbars, it gets MUCH worse than what you describe.
I want grip handles on my toolbars and NO text. So I use the control-
center to configure gnome this way.
Then I use a gtk+ apps like pan and balsa. *SIGH*. Best case scenario, I
can configure weither or not I want a grip/text. In most cases, I can't.
Libbonobui suffers from the same crack. Why the hell is there a
bonobo-ui-config-widget? I just told gnome I do NOT want text in my
toolbars. In anjuta I can turn off the text, but it never gets saved.
In evolution, I can't even do that. bonobo-ui-config-widget should just
die, it makes absolutely no sense at all. Why on earth would I want to
configure it in 5 different places, or worse, not be able to configure
it at all and get some settings I do not want stuffed down my throat?

Sorry for the rant, but I think this is a very big consistency problem.
