This will happen if the session manager starts an application which doesn't
register itself back with the session manager.

This is one thing included with the sawmill-gnome package.

Sawmill should not be placing windows under this panel...

gnome-core 1.1.9 has some help about this, actually. I don't think the
session manager capplet links to it yet (although session-properties does).
