I've got to admit that while I already hadn't liked the first suggested patch 
I didn't state my opinion immediately as I was curious to see what maybe good 
things would develop out of this. 

Although I still think that (IMHO) the original solution is  the best one, in 
my opinion in terms of design


was the best alternative you suggested (while it still has the problem of IMHO 
abusing pushbuttons for tab functionality). 
The more recent one


has the labels on the overview button disaligned with the tab labels and again 
disaligned with the Search label which hurts they eyes and again has some 
clutter to it. 
Also the button next to the tabs looks somehow misaligned and/or out of place. 
So systemsettings-after4.png had a much clearer layout that was easier on the 

Anyways, thanks for looking into this issue :-)
