Well duh. Of course I made sure that the applet had saved its state
before I removed it. But that doesn't matter since applets obviuosly has
no way of restoring their state once you remove them from the panel. They
will get a new ~/.gnome/panel.d/default/Applet_???_Extern each time.

And I know now that that is the expected behaviour.
