I vote for "Rectangle Toolbox": a single "s" is not enough to differentiate

BTW, there is a similar problem with the two entries called "Formula": on
Writer, if you go to Tools → Customize → keyboard tab → under Category
select Insert → you'll see both "Formula" entries, one after the other, the
first one to insert a Math object, the second to edit a formula for a cell
on a table inside Writer. IMO, The first one should be changed to "Math
formula" or simply to "Math".
