Unhappy Mdk 10.0 upgraded to Kde 3.2.3 - panel problems

I've upgraded my 10.0 official installation's kde packages with the kde 3.2.3 packages for mandrake availble from
Having experienced it, I would not recommend this upgrade. My current most annoying problem (not the only one) are a couple of panel bugs :

At startup, the kde applets taskbar and system tray do not get populated properly :
- the taskbar stays empty even if there are windows open,
- the system tray does not display the susal icons (klaptop, klipper, kmix, korganizer ...)

I have to manually remove the two applets and add them again, and they will then work until the next kde session.

Anyone knows how to fix the problem once and for all?

This was a known bug that has been fixed least with cooker's KDE packages.

I'm assuming that you are using the mandrake biaries from and not the ones from mandrake? Since I not using 10.0, and not sure which version the KDE packages are at, what I would do is set up a cooker source and upgrade only the KDE packages.
