[ubuntu-uk] have to start gnome-panel manualy after upgrade to jaunty

Need your help folks,
I upgraded my laptop from Hardy to Intrepid and then to Jaunty yesterday.
The problem is that gnome-panel never starts upon boot. Executing
[killall -v gnome-panels] reports "no process killed".
Tried to run [gnome-panel &] but it still dies when I close the terminal.
There are seemingly not helpful warnings produced in console:
(gnome-panel:5119): Gdk-WARNING **: /build/buildd/gtk+2.0-2.16.1/gdk/x11/
able-x11.c:878 drawable is not a pixmap or window
(gnome-panel:5119): libglade-WARNING **: Unexpected element <requires-
But no errors.
So, I do have X started with my desktop without panels. The right-click
on desktop works. If I start gnome-panel by a created launcher, it runs,
loads all my applets just fine, and stays for the rest of a session not
causing any problems.
Running it manually after each system start is pretty annoying though.
For now I'm using a quick-and-dirty fix: I've just added it to a list of
Startup Application applet. But there should be a right solution for it.
