Description of problem:
After upgrade my Dell C810 from FC2 to FC3, I started to encounter
OAFIID problem with window list and window switcher applets. The
following error is encounter during startup:

The panel encountered a problem while loading
Details: Failed to resolve, or extend

Do you want to delete the applet from your configuration?

The login works for a while after upgrade before encounter this error
and no work around to fix this problem.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Installed FC3, with /home untouch from FC2
2. login

Actual Results:  a error box with 2 options ("delete" and "don't
delete") is shown

Expected Results:  all should work without error

If this is still happening try doing the following from the command line:

  1) gnome-session-remove gnome-panel

  2) /usr/libexec/wncklet

  3) from another terminal do GNOME_PANEL_DEBUG=1 gnome-panel

And paste any error messages you see here.

If wncklet-applet is segfaulting, see:


for how to get a stack trace.

The problem disappear after I deleted the applet and re-install after
a few reboots.

I will collect the info when this happen again.

Thanks for the help.
