Desktop annoyance #3: Desktop Applets frequently break during login

  If I don't wait a LONG TIME ( maybe 20 Minutes ) with the GDM login 
screen displayed, before trying to login, there is a very high 
probability I will get several "Error: There was a problem loading Gnome 
Applet __ whatever. Delete [ ], or Don't Delete [ ]." boxes.

Pretty consistently, if I immediately log OUT, then log back in, the 
same things will load without problems.

The other "annoyances" are plausibly "just" resource shortages.  This 
one smells more like a race condition when gnome-panel is trying to 
start its applets.
