If you just say there might be a problem with expectations, ok.
But to say buttons on screen are not discoverable ...?
I'd say, if something sets the right expectations, you might call
that intuitive. Discoverable to me means that functionality can be
found and how easy that is. While always present buttons would
score higher, I can't accept a claim it's zero here.

Hmm. Gnome 2.16.3, GTK+ 2.10.9
Guess I should have posted 'current' screenshots to show from where
I started :)
And I can only hope things in development havn't changed all that.
