Description of problem:
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
the panel

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.right click on a gnome-panel, panel, add to panel, swallowed app...
2.fill the form with your fav app, e.g. "xload" as both command and title of the
window to swallow.
3.click OK

Actual Results:  panel shows empty applet, application runs in a separate window.

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

Additional info:

Setup is very standard: fresh 7.3 installation, desktop is (obviously) gnome,
window manager is sawfish. Using xwininfo on the app, window shows that the
title is just as expected by the gnome panel for the swallowing.

This feature has been removed from rawhide, because it can't really be
implemented reliably.
