"notification-area" shows empty contents


I didn't change anything, but ... (grin) ... I applied updates to my Ubuntu Lucid laptop.

Seriously, after a reboot, my gnome panel shows a notification area applet, but there are no status icons displayed. Normally I find
wicd, hplip, volume, evolution, battery, etc after a cold boot.
These did not show this time. I cannot find log entries that show
troubles with the notifier icon applets ... then I'm not sure what
I would look for or where to look.

I tried to remove the notification-area item from the panel and then reload it. This did not change anything.

I'll try to remove notification-area, reboot, add it back and see if that makes a difference.

Other suggestions?

It was there big as day after my Lucid install.
Now it is present, but empty.

I created a second username. After login, the notification
area was present and worked fine.

Soooooooooooooooooo

Now I know that I damaged my desktop parts somehow.
Can anyone offer a clue? (Thanks, the dot-something folders of my
$HOME folder. Nice.) I would prefer to fix the error rather than
move all my desktop parts aside and make all new. Again, I would
appreciate clues from someone who knows.

Why?

And is it even possible via package updates?

If I used either of those apps I'd understand.
In my case things simply vanished from the panel, and I cannot get them back without running from a terminal and backgrounding them.
Any other way I try to start them at login no longer works and
no one seems to find out why.

Sigh
