gnome-panel has always worked well for me but my wife has had numerous
problems where the only way we ever solved them was to delete all the
.gnome directories in the user account and then essentially start over
from scratch as far as Gnome was concerned. We both run Gentoo. I
upgrade most machine at the same time. I'm 64-bit while she's 32-bit,
but still it's been a problem for her.
