Description of problem:
i moved the panel notification area to the menu panel. i normally just have the
rhn applet up and running there. but i've found that when the authentication
keys get added to it, instead of laying the new icon horizontally, it does it
vertically, causing both to be half off the actual panel.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

2.cause another icon to go there, by doing something like running one of the
3.watch the icons get laid out vertically.
Actual Results: icons laid out vertically beyond panel bounds
Expected Results: icons laid out horizontally
moving the notification panel seems to fix the problem, so it appears to be
related to when an icon first gets added.
This is the same bug as #75718.
