The activities corner was triggered whenever the cursor touched it,
while the message tray was triggered when the cursor was hovered against
the edge for a couple of seconds.

Now, it should use pressure to trigger. Which means the activity corner
should not be activated accidentally so much, while the message tray can
be opened without a delay.

I've not tried it out myself yet though, I'll just wait till 13.10 is
