You like it opening on the current desktop, I like it moving to the Apps
desktop as it did in October Gnome.  Also I note that the pager is a bit
erratic, when changing to a virtual desktop (I use Enlightenment, which
scrolls the whole display) the representation is the pager scroll of the
side, this is also unlike the October Gnome.  My guess is that before the
Helix release I was using the original Gnome Pager rather than the separate
task list and pager set-up we now have.  Is there any way to install the
older applets?  I could download the source only but past experience with
CVS applets have been poor (I don't yet have the skills to make them work).

Has the keep menus in memoery actuall been disabled or is it the control
panel not saving the corect changes?  If the second choice I could edit the
config by hand if some one could tell me where to look.
