the state restoring works just fine for me .. it was a little bit broke for
about a day .... do make sure that you update all applets and recompile and
reinstall them ... then delete panel files in the .gnome dir .... the
session will be save in panel.d/<session-id>/* ... where the star is a bunch
of files ...

a problem with gnome-config is this ... if a file exists and you have a
directory of that name in your path when saving, the save fill mess up
... without warning actually ... and it will silently not do anything
therefore not saving the state ... this needs to be fixed ... gnome-confing
should probably issue a warning and move the offending file out of the way
... or use a different path or something to that extent ...
