Question Vanishing minimized apps - revisited

I left a message a few days back about minimized apps just disappearing (using Gnome) one day, when the day previous they behaved as they should, reducing to an icon on the panel. So, just for the heck of it, after losing track of Firebird and Star Office when I minimized them, I created a new panel and lo and behold there were the two apps, but both in a tiny little icon I almost did not see. Can anyone explain what is going on here? This is all much too frustrating!

I have a similar problem with the mandrake 8.2 disribution of gnome - but have not experienced it yet with mandrake 9.1.

I tried looking at the panel manual listing of current bugs - but nothing was mentioned about it! When I minimize apps they disappear so i have to start another one.
