#347 System Category icon not clickable


If you use the new Webmin theme, which is installed
by default, the System category icon isn't accessible
under certain conditions.
If you go to System, then it should not be clickable,
of course, because it's the current category.
However, if you go to any sub category (= program)
the System icon isn't clickable as well. F.i., go to
Servers: System is clickable. Then go deeper to
Apache: System icon isn't clickable anymore. This
seems to apply to all programs, once you are on the
program level you can't go to System unless you work
around by first clicking another category.
This is a bug while the next is more like a wish:
While researching this I also became aware that there
must have been a change in the "What's clickable"
policy, anyway. F.i., if I go to Servers/Apache, the
only way to go back to Servers is to either use
the "go back to index" link at the bottom or the back
button of the browser. I think in the older versions
if you went to a program you were able to click all
categories including the current one. It *does* make
sense if the current category is *not* clickable if
you are on the category index, however, if you are on
the program level I find it very convenient to
go "back" to this category index by clicking the
category. That's easier than to remember what
category you are in. Also, if you want to "go back to
index" with the link at the bottom I think it's too
low. In most occasions you first have to scroll down
before you can use it. Could you put it somewhere to
the top?
