Ticket #453 (assigned defect)
if the Sugar control panel is open, then Frame icons are inoperable

In Sugar 0.82.1 on XO-1 running candidate-800 (almost 8.2.1), I pressed the Frame key and tried to close some running activities. But the icons in the frame didn't highlight and were inoperable.
I finally realized that I had brought up the Sugar control panel in Home view, and then switched between activities using Alt+Tab. Once I closed the Sugar control panel, the Frame worked as expected.
Opening the Sugar control panel prevents the mouse corners from activating the frame in all activities and views. But you can still view and hide the Frame by pressing the frame key in any activity or Neighborhood/Group/Home view. The Frame looks usable but isn't.
I don't know what the right fix is. I often bring up the Sugar control panel to check some setting or my version, so it's nice to Alt+Tab to another activity while it's up. Maybe draw the frame background in Sugar's "disabled" or "inoperable" color when it's inactive.
