	That sounds strange. I don't recall any behavioural changes like that.
Anyway, do gconftool-2 --shutdown and the config will be written to

	That sounds about right, except in 2.10 you should use /apps/panel
instead of /apps/panel/profiles/default

	Also, some things will be a little strange with this method - e.g. if
you search for launch_location in the dump file it references a .desktop
file which has been copied into the home dir.

	My advice would be to just manually
edit /etc/gconf/schemas/panel-default-setup.entries and load that. It
isn't too hard to add another applet.
