"evenly spaced" was the wrong phrase, sorry.  I've tested again on Sugar
0.88, the icons are not regularly positioned horizontally.  That is,
their centre to centre distance varies.  This looks unpleasant to me.

Agreed.  I had only typed "a", and there was no response.  When I type
"ab" the "About Me", "About my Computer" and "Network" icons remain
sensitive, all others are insensitive.  Doesn't work on 0.84.

Yes, good idea.  Actually, we could backport all of 0.88 and call it
0.84.  Why stop there, why not backport all of 0.90 and call it 0.82?

Yes, we have a hammer, every problem is a nail.
