Hi all,

I have upgraded all the possible upgrades in lucid on Oct 7, 2010. And since then the network applet and other applets moved to the right of the poweroff button in the main panel on the top of desktop. The upgrade log was as follows:

I guess some of the coreutils are broken. Did anybody else face the same issue?

rm -r ~/.gconf/apps/panel
this will restore your panel to the default.

Excellent. This works. however, be careful while using rm anytime. I wasn't careful and just copy pasted the command to my terminal, and didn't notice there was a gap between ~/ and the .gconf !! All my data was erased :( , luckily I had data backed up.
