I ran also into the problem that panel-properties didn't seem to be saved.
I figured out thats not the fault of the panel but the fault of 
gnome-session, which isn't saving correct, it misses to write the
line 'num_clients=x', so gnome-session deals with reloading a
corrupted session-configuration and falls back to the default configuration
which also means that the panel starts with its default config !
