How strange, running '/usr/lib/deskbar-applet/deskbar-applet -w' works
fine, no problems at all.
Then I launched it in a terminal, and proceeded to add it to the
panel. It failed twice, and the third time I pressed "reload" it
appeared in the panel, and it works. There is one worrying error
message in the terminal though:
(deskbar-applet:4270): Bonobo-WARNING **: Never got frame, control
died - abnormal exit condition
Now I have to see whether it stays there when I log out and back in again...
