had this with header-footer widgets getting clicked by mistake.

I've heard the complaints -worse- I've seen the effects at conferences:
"oh, where did that slide go" (afterwards it turned out to be
accidentally hidden) that have harmed people's talks, not isolated

Yep - it seems a shame to hide something that is quite beautiful and
seems like it -should- be really useful, but ... screwing up people's
presentations is not ideal ;-)
