Description Peter Eacmen 2003-12-30 15:08:28 EST
Description of problem:
In my setup the panel is not expanded and does not have the hide
buttons.  On subsequent reboots when I login the components that I
previously ordered on the panel are now in a different order. 
Commonly the left two components (window list and workspace list) are
switched around.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): Fedora
Core 1 (no erratas)

How reproducible: Follow steps

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a panel that is not expanded
2. Add components to the panel
3. Reboot several times and it should re-occur
Actual results: Order of components differ.

Expected results: Components order should be preserved

Does this issue still persist or was it fixed by doing upgrades?
Comment 2 Bart Martens 2004-02-12 19:21:23 EST
Try right-click on the icon, and select lock. Does this help?
Comment 3 Mark McLoughlin 2004-02-23 05:41:44 EST
Peter: I can't reproduce this here with Fedora Core 1 and I was pretty
sure it had been fixed.

Could you detail the exact steps you are using to reproduce this e.g.:

  1. Create a panel, make it not expand
  2. Add a terminal launcher, then a battery applet ...
  3. Swap the position of the launcher and batter applet
  4. Re-start the panel

If you just do "killall gnome-panel" instead of rebooting, it should
have the same effect wrt reproducing the bug.

Also reported upstream by someone else:

Sorry we have been in release cycle for past couple months, I havent 
had time to look at this at all.  I will get to it as soon as we are 
done with release.

Resolving UPSTREAM. Its fixed upstream now - we'll pull the fix in
with 2.6.1. Thanks :)
