Gnome panel error


I'm having some trouble with the gnome panel. Every time I run something from 'Run Application' in the Action menu, I get this error:

The application "gnome-panel" attempted to change an aspect of your configuration that your system administrator or operating system vendor does not allow you to change. Some of the settings you have selected may not take effect, or may not be restored next time you use the application.

Can't overwrite existing read-only value: Can't overwrite existing read-only value: Value for `/apps/gnome-settings/gnome-panel/history-gnome-run' set in a read-only source at the front of your configuration path

I've tried changing the permissions in the .gconf dir in my home directory, but it doesn't help. I recently copied everything off and back onto my /home partition after resizing it, and some of the ownerships and permissions got messed up. I also deleted much of /var/cache, but I don't see how that could be related. If anyone has any ideas, they would be much appreciated.

Thanks

When something screwy like this happens to me.. I just dump all the .gnome type configuration files in my home directory and start over, reconfiguring to my liking.
