Description of problem:
gnome-panel application crashes with "fatal error" message during XWindow+GNOME
startup after some customization of settings done 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
Problem happens every time I start XWindow with GNOME, but supposly there is no
easy way to reproduce this problem in another system. That's why I choose
"Sometimes" option. It started to happen after I little bit customized
gnome-panel settings - content, behavior and screen placement. Moreover, it
happened for the first time after restarting XWindow, not during gnome-panel

Shortly speaking, what I did is:

1. Customized gnome-panel settings. 
2. Closed XWindow session and started it again.

Then found the problem.

Expected Results:  gnome-panel running properly

Additional info:

system-tray-applet-ERROR **: file obox.c: line 107 (get_class): should not be

error. (Aborted)' from which I had no path to clean recovery ... I had to power
down and log in as a different user to do anything.  Repeatable on two separate
RH 8.0 systems. - email or
