An Activity toolbar design that always shows the "Stop" button

I was just going over some notes I made while watching my 2 nieces and nephew using Sugar (8.2) on 2 XO. One specific observation was their difficulty in getting to grips with the toolbar tabs, for many Activities, this leads to a common state where the "Stop" button is hidden, which in turn prevented them from ending an Activity. They did discover how to switch back to the home view and start another Activity (leaving a trail of open activity instances until things locked up due to memory issues). The other 'solution' they found (in paint) was to just make a very large brush and paint out (and loose) their last work, back to a clean canvas to start again (again due to difficulty with tabs they didn't make use of the edit clear canvas toolbar button).
With reference to the future design mock-ups shown on:
I'd like to suggest that the "Stop" button be always present on the primary (always visible) tool bar.
