The applet that caused this problem for me was definitely the drive
mount applet.  I've got the other usual suspects happily on the panel
now: mini-commander, modem lights, clock/mailcheck.  Modem-lights and
the clock/mailcheck seem fragile, but don't make the problems that the
drive mount applet makes.

At least I got libgtop and gtop built so I could seek and kill the
surplus panels.  I was also getting a ghost panel, with no icons and no
responsiveness to kill -9.  Gtop revealed a number of instances of panel
running.  Seems like while the drive mount would load as a double
applet, attempts to bring it back would cause a flood of message about
being unable to load applet and continued attempts to load applet when
running panel from a shell.  I stopped trying for gnome-core 0.99.2.
