Actually, I was hit by the similar situation on experimental/sid mix
system after careless dist-upgrade :-)
gnome-panel is only 3.4.2 (no experimental).
maybe with some erratic aptitude activity and gnome-session-fallback
depending on <3.5, my 3.8 installation got broken. So it is not simple
and easy ... These minor gliches of aptitude tends to bite me.
Now I am under xfce ... maybe later, I will get back.
