The only way to modify the panel in the UNR is to manually edit the file "/var/lib/gconf/une.mandatory/%gconf-tree.xml". I guess you will get the point when you study the entries. These are system-wide settings. You need to gain root access to edit the file, like this:

gksu gedit /var/lib/gconf/une.mandatory/%gconf-tree.xmlI had to do that to "free" the "Window Picker Applet". ;-)
