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):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.put the notification panel in the menu panel and have at least one item in the
it, such as the rhn-applet.  i've found that you need to have it like this at
the start.  if you move it to the menu panel later, things seem to work ok.
2.cause another icon to go there, by doing something like running one of the
redhat-config-* apps.
3.watch the icons get laid out vertically.

Actual Results:  icons laid out vertically beyond panel bounds

Expected Results:  icons laid out horizontally

Additional info:

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.

Seems the only way to fix it is to delete the settings for Panel in the .gconf
and .gconfd folders. I would not recommend doing this unless you REALLY need to!
