Herein lies a miscommunication on my part.

The gnome-applets bugs need to be fixed in the gnome-core-1-0 branch of
gnome-core. Some of those bug modules I mentioned don't have direct CVS
module equivalents (e.g. gnome-terminal is also in gnome-core).

On the systems I use, I just go ahead and remove the "normal Gnome stuff"
install the stuff built from CVS into --prefix=/gnome, and use that as
"the" Gnome.

I don't know of a clean way to have two GNOME installations when one of
them is in the system directory (prefix=/usr).
