Can we have something that simply work for Debian stable ?
Why this gnome-panel is in Stable since it is buggy as crap ??
I am wondering. It never worked for me since years.
I never had such a problem (using Etch since testing).
Are you sure it's not just the server from your weather provider screwing up that applet?
Applets can/will/should disappear when the underlying process stops...
Installing GNOME from source is really not a fun thing to do and mixing Debian with non-debian GNOME parts is asking for trouble.
PS: If you need a really stable desk, try Fluxbox.
Since you already have GNOME, you can use its gnome-settings-daemon and have all essential GNOME candy (and applications) in Flux
