Description of problem:
The gnome-panel, when set to not expand, will not attach itself to the side of the window after logon unless it is done manually. Previously, in FC2 and FC3 this behavior worked.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set gnome panel to not expand and drag it to the bottom right corner.
2. Log off and log on.
Actual Results: The bottom panel was not in the bottom right corner as it had been before I logged off.
Expected Results: The bottom panel should have been in the bottom right corner.
I run two panels, top and bottom, that are set to not expand nor autohide giving me smaller panels and some extra room to dock applications.

The panel is running the workspace switcher, the notification applet, the
gnome-pilot applet, the mail notification applet, the 'logout' button and a
custom launcher to launch mutt in an xterm. It used to have an applet for

Ah, I know what's going on here.
When the pager applet starts up first it momentarily takes up a lot more space
(width-wise) than it should and so expands the panel, causing the panel's
position to change. When the pager applet goes back to its normal size, the
panel stays in that new position.
I don't think anything changed in this area since GNOME 2.4, so I'm surprised
that you say it worked with FC3.
