Thanks for the suggestion -- I myself had tried a hack along those 
lines -- but actually what Lili-Anne said ...


was exactly what I was looking for, and missed, namely: go to the 
Advanced tab under launcher properties and for "Arrow button 
position" select "Inside Button". This makes a drawer-type thingy, 
in which all the actual launchers appear as sub-entries.

I have to say that it's hard to guess that would be the effect, but 
once you know it works fine.
