I completely agree, too. Just making the orange less sharp (that is, 
mainly, progressbars and icons. Try saving a search with nautilus (or 
rename a random file to "blah.savedSearch". That is a non-disturbing color.

inappropriate for a progress bar as it is a subtle way to inform users: 
Indeed, it's inconsistent, too.)
