Clicking on desktop hides notes - bad UI mentality

remove desktop hiding functionality
Description of problem: Clicking on the desktop hides your notes. Any accidental clicks will make all your notes disappear! I can't tell you how many times I've let out profanity for such non-sense. All my peers agree.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): gnome-applets-2.26.1-3.fc11
Additional info: The attached patch removes the click-on-desktop-to-hide-notes functionality. I've sent it upstream, but I have no hope that they will incorporate it as the bug for it as been open for 3 years. The patch is against gnome-applets-2.26.1-3.fc11 and I have made local RPMs on my system just in case Fedora refuses the patch as well.
What do I have to do to get some attention on this bug?
I noticed there was an upstream bug on Sticky Notes that was fixed in the gnome-applets update last week. My fix has gone completely unnoticed by all parties. I've had to rebuild the Fedora RPM with my patch twice. Not looking forward to three times.
Sorry for the slow response on this bug report.
I don't think this is a patch we would want to carry without upstream buy in.
What's the upstream bug number?
Sorry about that. I thought I had the external bug attached. It should be now. If not, it's here: http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=315508
After re-reading it looks like three/four bugs in one so that may be the cause of the confusion and 3 year delay...
This functionality was retracted upstream in 2.28, but in order to even use stickynotes in current Fedora, you have to apply the patch from bug 574696.
