Internet search applet wastes space

You need to
before you can comment on or make changes to this bug.
STEPS TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM:
Add the "Internet Search" applet to the Desktop, resize it so it is about half
the size of the screen.
The input area is still readable and has enough room to display text. There is
no need for so much padding, so many arrows and the black "resize grip".
The right resize grip (the black one) wastes too much space. There are also too
many arrows (in my opinion) and too much padding, which makes the search applet
only usable when it is resized to the whole desktop size, which takes away
space for other applets.
Always - Simply add the search applet, resize it to half of the screen and see
how much space is left for the search text entry.
It would be really important to fix this, as nobody is going to use such a big
black resize grip - it takes away space that is better used for other applets
on the desktop.
Re-assigning to UI interaction
I would try to create a patch and send it in, but I cannot find the source code
for the Internet Search applet.
thp: should be part of the hildon-desktop module.
I can't find the "isearch-applet" source in the "hildon-desktop" source
apt-get source hildon-desktop
grep "^Package:" control
The Internet Search applet on my N800 (OS2008) is in the package
"isearch-applet" that is not generated by the "hildon-desktop" source package.
On the N800 via ssh:
~ $ apt-cache show isearch-applet

Sorry. This home applet has been dropped in Fremantle and no more development
will be done for it in Diablo. No more waste of space. (please accept the
