Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:36 EST
Description of problem:
Gnome forgets the location fo workspace switcher and trash applet between logins.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
I am going to assume that the default screen resolution is 1280x1024. The bug
doesn't depend on it but it makes it easier to explain it.
1. Install a fresh version of Fedora Core development and create a new user account.
2. Log in. Go to "System/Preferences/Screen Resolution" and change the
resolution to 1024x768. Keep the new resolution.
3. Log out.
4. Log in again under the same user account, go to "System/Preferences/Screen
Resolution" and change the resolution from 1024x768 back to 1280x1024.
Workspace switcher and trash applet forget their correct location.
Workspace switcher and trash applet should be in the lowest right corner of the
Clock applet, volume applet, and notification area remember their locations
