Hello Stefan,

I'm sorry, but unfortunately you got an intermediate version. 
The first commited version was better, and the current is about perfect (Except one thing: "Keys might not get saved/restored in all occasions")

And I'm glad that you only report PanelApplet stuff. This was still pending.

Initial update was missing - fixed now

I don't believe this -it  cannot be. When does this happen? After you drag the panel, re-login or after removing and re-inserting the Applet?

Not a real bug: It takes as much space as it gets: I might change that if possible.

Fixed: minimum

First: fixed

Second: "inverse" has been removed now, due to VERY unclear semantics

Because there was NO WAY to fix bugs anymore. If one fixes one bug, you would create one or two new.

It worked? You should have taken a look at This PanelApplet was a neat bug-house, nothing more.
- It crashed all the time
- It would not show
- It loses all its settings as soon as you drag it
- It forget to save config
- and so on and so on.

Sorry again, the version now is clean.
