Actually, I may be wrong, but I seem to remember I was having problems with
just that.  The applets need to be done with gtk_widget_reparent, not with
ref/remove/add/unref as that kills the plug in the process.  At least that's
what I remember.  So if this changes in 1.4, we may have to brew our own 1.2
style reparent into the panel.
