I performed a complete reinstall of f7 to fix a problem wherein HAL and Avahi 
daemons would not start.

Now, everything is well in root account. However, now if I log in as root via a 
vnc session, the same problem exists.

Comment 2 Will Starck 2007-07-30 13:53:00 UTC
A little more investigation shows that the problem exists for all accounts on
the system, and appears to involve a problem with gnome and vncserver.

If I am logged into an account the applets will appear fine. If I then log in
via vnc, the applets will crash in the vnc session. If I then log out of the
box, and restart the vncserver, the applets will appear fine via vnc. However,
if I then log into the box, they will crash locally, but still be fine in the
vnc session.
