Description of Problem:
When gweather is removed from the panel, it leaves it properties file named of

I wouldn't be surprised if _all_ applets did this... I don't think there's
anything special about gweather.

Comment 2 Gene Czarcinski 2002-04-11 18:44:20 UTC
But that does not mean that it is a desired behavior.

I don't expect this to be fixed any time soon since should not be a high
priority on anybody's queue but I hope it does not get forgotten either.

Comment 3 Havoc Pennington 2002-04-11 19:03:31 UTC
Of course it should be fixed, didn't mean to imply otherwise. 
It's fixed in gnome 2 already if nothing else.

(We're very rapidly nearing the "last drop of gnome 1.4" point, though, 
so it may only be fixed with the gnome 2 move.)

Comment 4 Havoc Pennington 2002-07-03 15:30:06 UTC
Fixed in gnome 2 in rawhide.
