Tracked as http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=94625

(the workaround for now is no tray applets on vertical panels)

I'm working on a new panel package btw, for this and menu editing.
Comment 4 Michael A. Peters 2002-10-17 17:12:51 EDT
I hate to nit pick- but there really should be an errata about this at least
describing the problem, how to avoid it, what to do if it gets you, and when a
fix will be released.

Judging from http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=94625 this is a fairly
commonly encountered bug.

I ran into it my first day using RH 8 - and others have too.
It's serious enough there should be an errata on it.
Comment 5 Havoc Pennington 2002-10-18 00:07:32 EDT
Yes, agreed. I want to get menu editing in the errata too, that's the hard 
part.
Comment 6 Havoc Pennington 2002-10-21 12:42:54 EDT
Someone suggested mentioning how to recover from this:
go to a virtual console (Ctrl+Alt+F1) or ssh in to the machine,
move ~/.gconf/apps/panel to ~/.old-panel-config or something, 
and then reconfigure the panel (not putting the tray applet on 
the vertical panel)
