I'm working on a new panel package btw, for this and menu editing.
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.
Yes, agreed. I want to get menu editing in the errata too, that's the hard
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)
