	When the button is pressed (Take an screenshot Action item), it
closes and executes gnome-panel-screenshot. But the screenshot is taken
from the window the cursor is over, not from the active window.

	Currently take an screenshot from a window is only possible
using ALT + Print Screen and not using the menu item.

	With the "both" screenshots patch, it is possible to take also
using the menu item, but you will get the first window where you moved
your mose over as the "window screenshot".

	In the real world, if an user wants a screenshot, he should use
the Print Screen key, because is the only sane way to select/move over the
window. The other possible approach is the tipical "Take an screenshot"
dialog where you have a delay entry and the dialog hides. But this way
is overcomplicated.

	Maybe we can show the user the Print screen magic adding a
lamp-tip (ie: a beatiful lamp picture and a text saying "You can take
also an screenshot pressing Print Screen key").

	Also, I've just found a bug in the screenshot program.
