Hmm - I'm actually logging into gnome as `jake', but then executing the
applet from a terminal as root (using `su')

My Gnome was crashing until I deleted /home/paul/.gnome and

could temporarily rename /root/.gnome to see if it helps.

Are there any funky messages in .gnome-errors or
/var/log/messages ?

no on both counts.

I have the same problem when I try to start the applet by selecting it

It may be a bug in gnome panel, but I rather think it's my perl program.
I have submitted the bug to gnome (using bug-buddy).
