Description of problem:
I have installed Fedora Core 3. When I run Gnome desktop and hit the
minimise button the window is lost. No entry is available on the panel
to restore the app.
If I change to KDE or XFCE the apps can be restored?
Reinstalled GNOME now working OK. The problem I had was after doing an
net upgrade using up2date so that may have done something strange.
I think it's likely that the window list applet somehow got removed from your panel.
