Adding a swallowed application to a gnome-panel results in the panel showing an
empty applet, and the application running in a separate window instead of inside

Steps to Reproduce:
1.right click on a gnome-panel, panel, add to panel, swallowed app...

Expected Results: application running in the appropriate space inside the panel.
