[Dextrose 2] Secondary palette appears too soon on Neighborhood view buddy icons

Observed on Dextrose 2 build 1dx2 Dextrose 2 International running on an XO-1.
When hovering an XO figure in the Neighborhood view, the extended palette appears almost instantly. This can be distracting when the intent is only to determine the name of the Learner, and also obscures more of the view than necessary for the task.
I would suggest that a slightly longer delay (perhaps 0.5 second) before showing the secondary palette and a similar delay before the name palette disappears.
One should be able to hover until the name palette appears, then move the pointer away to avoid revealing the secondary palette. The name palette would then disappear after about a half second. This method works well in OLPC build 802.
