Yesterday I had the same problem; By doing: dcop kicker kicker restart
the problem seems resolved, without restart X. I'll try to reproduce it ASAP 
and report (with one backtrace would be better) it here.

Comment 2 Mary Ellen Foster 2007-06-21 11:06:35 UTC
This happened to me too, mostly -- the clock didn't disappear out of my panel,
but all my settings were lost. I've discovered I have a file called
with all of my old settings in it. Could this be a clue as to what happened?

Comment 3 Rex Dieter 2007-06-21 11:33:51 UTC
I think the settings wrt to the clock applet were tweaked in kde-settings-3.5-28
-> kde-settings-29 upgrade.

Problem being that the old settings were not quite right (my bad), and
are(should be!) better now, but the consequence of doing so was that previous
clock-applet customizations may get lost.  So, I'm not sure if there's anything
we can do about it.

Comment 4 Ngo Than 2007-07-02 14:20:46 UTC
it should be fixed in new kde-settings-3.5-30. It's in F-7 CVS branch.
I will push it to f7update soon. Thanks for your report.
