Yes, this would be nicer.  There should be fewer windows in the future by

the option to zoom things out to windows so I'll see if we can get icons
designed for each of the managers along with the others that we need.

The "-> *" is really the main start icon and does already do this when at
a breakpoint.  The ">"  icon only serves as "run to first line" which
