RE: newcomer Bug Reports

What I am interested in is a way to revert back to a previous panel
configuration.  My problem is the panel configuration gets saved in a
corrupted way.  

Sometimes after the panel crashes I will restart the panel, and three
overlapping panels will appear, all having multiple instances of various
applets I was running. Usually my launcher icons are preserved.  

It would be nice if there was a file or directory I could back up that the
panel would read its configuration from.  I tried backing up
~/.gnome/panel.d/, but restoring that directory didn't restore my panel

actually it's saving it's configuration all the time ... the panel has to
however save somewhere where the session manager tells it to ...

I guess the session manager could initiate a session save every once
in a while .... although the panel, once it has the proper place on
where to save ... should save all it's stuff as it's changed ...
