If you don't use the task list you can disable that in the plugins. I 
can't remember the exact name of the plugin. I just went through the 
list and it popped out at me and I clicked to get rid of it.

There's also a plugin that lets you connect directly to TRAC systems to 
handle issues. It would be nice to create something similar to connect 
with Project's issue tracker. If I knew enough Java I would tackle that.
