Yes, you make a valid point.  You can lock your panels in KDE-3, but I 
doubt that may users did so.  The problem is that there isn't a separate 
lock for panels and you don't want to leave the widgets unlocked.

Perhaps I should clarify what didn't work, although you might discern it 
from context with the menu issues.  I had no problem adding icons to the 
unlocked panel.  The problem is that said icons have the wrong icon and 
clicking on them does not open the application.
