Not sure.  It's very weird if it works for some applets and not for others.

Maybe try looking at the differences on how the two applets set up?  And this
includes the order in which the widgets are created and added.  Try playing
with that, if you find a workaround, then mail me and I'll try to figure out
why it was failing in the first place.
