I had the same problem. I'm using an Acer Aspire One model AOA 110-ab, and using the final version of Ubuntu netbook remix 9.04, installed from an USB pen.

This is what I have done to fix the problem:
I installed desktop-switcher_0.4.6_i386.deb, (tried changing desktop modes a few times, the same results).
Then I tried the `gconftool-2 --set /desktop/gnome/session/required_components_list --type list --list-type=string ["windowmanager","panel","filemanager"]` command, that almost worked for me.
Now I can change (and retain after a reboot) between classic and netbook, but in netbook mode the panel at the top right of the screen (where the network icon and the clock is) does not appear, even after a reboot.

Only one more thing. I don't know if is really related, but when I change from netbook to classic, a error dialog flashes without giving time to read it, and then changes to classic mode just fine.
