What about the "Options…" button under Wireless in the network plug? It opens an external window, but does it fall under this blueprint? ~CameronNemo

the violators Language, Startup Apps, and Drivers are also violators on Ubuntu. Maybe some kind of XEmbed stuff is needed to make sure they don't pop up - manishsinha

How about printers plug? It seem to display an external window too http://ubuntuone.com/2WDbYsBWFGlRJJliWY4Hwe

Correct me if I'm wrong, but switchboard-2.0 has fixed this, right? -Avi
