2 small isues on a new installation

--I would like the systray icons a little larger. I thought the size was tied to the Caption Buttons, but I think Classic Shell has broken that connection.

--I'm using Win 7 Classic Theme. When I perform a system action, the screen flashes then grays out for a moment. I can't find it in a search of the web. These are definitely tied to performing a system action, not random or indicating a graphics card problem. I've never had it on previous installations.

How about the flash of lightning every time I perform a Win function? Although it's not as bad as the dancing screens in Aero.
