i wonder if it wouldn't make more sense to show it in place of the icon 
instead of right over the text?

also, you don't need to check a variable before deleting it, e.g. this:

+    if (m_busyWidget) {
+        delete m_busyWidget;
+    }

should just be this:

    delete m_busyWidget;
    m_busyWidget = 0;

that last check is important because the value of m_busyWidget is checked 
elsewhere in the code! right now it won't crash because we only use a task 
once for a startup item, but if that ever changes just deleting the object but 
not resetting the pointer would lead to a crash.
