@leocg Well, I have to give it to you, you've got me by a couple of versions. I went poking around and found the search field cut out. I'll admit not used to thinking of the SD as a start page (I wonder what percentage use it that way). Glad to hear the power code business is gone, as I never liked it (you can tell I haven't needed for a good while, as on my desktop I live on betas and haven't often done clean installs). One thing early on post-Presta and for quite awhile was that the visible maximum number of columns setting didn't allow setting a fixed number of columns; that had to be done via the power settings code.
P.S. Turns out that the Search field showing separately on a clean install is considered a bug and being fixed.
