           Summary: weather applet doesn't work correctly in vertical panel
           Product: Ubuntu
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: powerpc
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: gnome-applets

The gnome panel weather applet does not display correctly when its placed in a
vertical panel.  It seems like the applet is not getting correct information on
panel orientation (vertical vs. horizontal) and the panel dimensions (panel
width).  The weather-status icon (clouds, sun, etc) is displayed to the left of
the temperature, and is partially cut off by the edge of the panel.  I have a
screen shot illustrating this at:  

If if resize the panel, for example, increase the panel width by one pixel --
and even if I immediately set the panel size back to the orignal value -- then
the applet displays correctly.  I have a screen shot showing the applet after I
increased the panel width by one pixel:

The weather applet always displays correctly in a horizontal panel, as shown here:

If I "fix" the applet by resizing the panel, then it will display correctly for
a while, but it will eventually revert to the incorrect display (I'm not sure
what triggers this, perhaps logging out and logging back in).

This bug is quite repeatable on my laptop (Apple iBook) running 5.10 breezy/powerpc.
