I noticed that accidentally just after reading your paragraph. 
Apparently it is a two step process:

- Click the upper right corner of an activity icon to make a red "x" 
- Then click again on the "x". Now a dialog asks for confirmation to 
remove the activity.

Is this kind of interaction supposed to be intuitive, even sensible? 
Without asking it didn't occur to me and as far as I can tell, it isn't 
documented anywhere.
