We're going to be removing the existing applet, so there will be even
less interface :) Rather than the applet, we'll be integrating directly
with the messaging indicator, and with the fusa applet. We'll also be
adding some additional things to the Nautilus extensions like file
emblems that change when files are being uploaded and downloaded. There
was discussion at UDS Barcelona about a "downloads indicator" that would
be able to show how much of your network was currently being used, but
I'm not sure whether that definitely is going into Karmic.

The logs are in ~/.cache/ubuntuone.

Each of those things you mentioned, even the blurry things, are
definitely worth reporting as bugs. Even writing this mail has been
useful feedback, so thank you for trying out Ubuntu One and for telling
us what your experience was like!
