Description of problem:
After upgrading to 7.2 from 7.1, the Clocks submenu of applets was empty.
One of the applet files that should have been there was dropped in the
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Upgrade a 7.1 system to 7.2
2. Right-click on the GNOME foot. Select Applets->Clocks from there.
3. Observe that you get an empty menu.
Actual Results: The /usr/share/applets/Clocks directory was empty.
Expected Results: The /usr/share/applets/Clocks directory should have
contained five entries.
This is actually a feature; the menu of 5 is replaced by a single clock menu
item. IIRC the empty directory hangs around because of a screwup in the 7.1 RPM
(it doesn't own the directory). There's no real way to fix the 7.1 RPM
We should have e.g. hacked the panel not to display empty submenus, but, too late...
