Bug Description

Binary package hint: gnome-panel

I've set gnome-panel to 'show hide buttons', if I hide the panel and restart Ubuntu the panel forgets its hidden state and shows up visible again. This is an obvious problem, specifically it's a problem for me because I like to have Gnome Do running at the bottom of my screen, but I like to have the panel available when needed.

(Problems with gnome-panel forgetting it's state have actually been reported at least twice before, but those reports were confusing and ended as 'Invalid'. The two bugs I found were bug #152815 and bug #119910 )
