Description of problem:
After updating GNOME from rawhide the panel can no-longer find the
date configuration tool. The panel reports the error:
Failed to locate a program for configuring the date and time. Perhaps
none is installed?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Right-click on the date/time applet
2. Select "Adjust Date & Time..."
Actual Results: An error dialog appears stating "Failed to locate a
program for configuring the date and time. Perhaps none is installed?"
Expected Results: The system-config-date applet should appear and
Running system-config-date from the terminal produces the expected
result, but the GNOME panel does not.

Patch for gnome-panel to look for system-config-date
This looks like the obvious solution.
[I can't easily test the patch right now though.]
Please reversion correctly (FC 2 test 1, not test 3).
The latest rawhide updates for gnome-panel doesn't even show an option
for configuring the date and time, is this feature being removed?

Fixed in CVS HEAD - will be fixed for FC test2

* clock.c: Check for system-config-date which is the new
name for Fedora's date and time tool. RH bug #116495.
Hmm, I prefer to only close out the bug when the fix is actually available
I firmly agree with that ;-) .
