Hi David.

Probably I am wrong but I think it's rather panel issue. It just
doesn't query applet list on every open of add window. It does query
only on start. It's easy to check - just put breakpoint in 


and see when it does new query.

So neither gconf, nor b-a-s is responsible.

Also there a lot of plans to make applets more run-time installable, probably even from application.
There is even google bounty for that. So you can hope this problem will be fixed soon.
