	Notably - just running an applet from the command line will not add the
applet into the panel - even if it is there; so there is really no point
in running applets from the command line.

	Furthermore, they should all be removed from your path soon by moving
them into $(libexecdir) which will make it harder for people to run them
by mistake.

	Hopefully, they will get b-a-s to execute the applets, which is how it
is intended to be used, and not poke around in the terminal.

	It's not hung, it's waiting to be used; quite likely the factory should
quit if it's not served an object after a certain time; AFAIR currently
it doesn't.
