I am unable to add a gdict applet to the panel using the right-click menu.
Ximian Gnome has it in the Network applets list IIRC.
If I run gdict from the commandline, it appears as an applet. Unfortuntely it
disappears when I log out and log back in (despite saving my session).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
This is fixed in GNOME 2 and we'll get the fix on upgrade to GNOME 2 in the next
