well i finally googled gnome-panel cpu usage and discovered it is a BUG that
has been around for a while. If you use gnome panel in vertical mode and have
more than 8 apps open in the panel then it starts consuming cpu cycles.
since I have a wide display I was use it in vertical mode and I had made two
i am experimenting with some other panel apps. i suspect I will regret
this. the first one i have tried is barpanel. you have to add icons to it
by editing the .barpanel/config.xml file. it seems to be picky about the
format of icons and it has no documentation.
anyone had experiene with alternat panel apps?
