Did you check out gnome-applets?

If so:
Are you sure you don't have old (pre-cvs) versions of the applets
floating around? Perhaps you didn't install the cvs version to the
same prefix?

If not:
You should. Compile and install this module to get new applets. They
all work fine.

BTW. I have an old copy of the quicklaunch_applet floating around (I
depend on it), and it seems to have left cvs. Obviously, it doesn't
respond to the save-yourself command, but I fixed this by adding
signal handler for the "save_session" signal, which returns FALSE.

Anyone interested in the diff? Since it seemed abandoned, I have been
fiddling, and am in the process of adding a "New Launcher..." context
menu. Is this acceptable, or should I let it die? Is the author
re-writing it? I _need_ the panel space, so I don't want to do without
it until the next version!
