APPLET_EXTERN_RESERVED means that the spot is only reserved not taken by
the applet .... that will happen when it becomes APPLET_EXTERN then it
should signal another orientation_change ... I'll look at the code if
this is what happens

I'll see what happens here .. it's probably that the resizing is done in
a bad order ... but a size_allocate which would happen on the plug would
get caught by the socket and would make the panel resize itself ...

I'll test this with another applet ...
