Has anyone experienced a desktop panel crash in 1.6?
I have experienced severe desktop panel crashes in the past (1.5), which is characterized by a blank screen, then wallpaper loads, then icons, then widgets for several seconds. In the past I have attributed this event to a severe slow down of the CPU.
Now, I am inclined to label this a crash.
In 1.6, the desktop panel crash occurs: the panel has to re-render all icons and widgets, and "desktop panel location" (green bar). Upon crash it initially indicates that you are on the center panel even if you are not. Fixes itself when you try to switch to another desktop panel.
