Interesting behavior that I haven't seen.  Not explicitly *wrong*, but
funny none the less.

All planned, and all a part of making the list view more themeable.
Personally I prefer that it be controlled by the theme rather than YAS

my primary focus, but it will probably take a few revisions before we
find a nice balance of usability, versatility, and themeability.
