Bug Description

First of all, Ubuntu-bug doesn't work properly any more. In the first screen, if I select the option for "other" it bounces me out of the program. So I selected the least inappropriate working option.

Taskbar --
I have the taskbar showing 7 programs. I have deleted some and added the following: Emacs, Wine-NaturallySpeaking, and Wine-notepad.

The icons add fine.

But I want to move wine-notepad up. I can do this, but when I re-boot the icon is always back where it started.

This is a regression.
