If I add the CPU monitor part of multiload_applet to my
panel, I can configure it, and it works just fine. However,
it will not reappear if I logout and log back in again.
FWIW, this happens even on a completely fresh install and a
brand-new user, so it doesn't appear to be related to any
older GNOME files lurking about...
Could not replicate this problem with the gnome-core shipped with Red
