Status in budgie-desktop source package in Kinetic:

Bug description:
  [ Impact ]

   * Budgie Panel applet ordering sometimes randomly changes due to
     1. Forced shutdown causing the panel to corrupt itself
     2. or uninstalling an applet whilst it is still on the panel

   * Once the panel random reordering issue occurs, there is no way to
  recover the situation other then forcing a full panel reset that will
  lost any custom changes.

  [ Test Plan ]

   * From the default ubuntu budgie layout, uninstall an applet like quicknote using budgie desktop settings
   * logout and login
   * note that applets begin to reorder themselves in random positions such as spacers and separators
   * reinstall quicknote and logout and login. Note that the reordering still occurs.
   * from the proposed repo install the following packages:

     sudo apt update
     sudo apt install budgie-desktop budgie-core libbudgie-plugin0 libbudgie-private0 libbudgietheme0 libraven0 gir1.2-budgie-1.0

   * Logout and login

   * Note the ordering on the panel should no longer be random and will reflect the layout in budgie-desktop-settings.
   * uninstall quicknote, logout and login
   * Note the ordering on the panel will still reflect the layout in budgie-desktop-settings

  [ Where problems could occur ]

   * The budgie panel is central to the budgie-desktop experience. So any patch in this area needs to be thoroughly vetted through testing.
   * This has been achieved by creating a couple of test PPAs and multiple community members have confirmed their panel issues have been resolved by this patch.
   * https://discourse.ubuntubudgie.org/t/statusbar-icons-moving-around-and-changing-order-after-reboot/6266
   * This fix has been in Debian for a couple of months and in a similar timeframe with Kinetic.  Thus the UB team are content that no adverse issues have occurred.  We have monitored errors.ubuntu.com and no increased budgie-panel issues have been reported.
  [ Other Info ]
   * N/A


  I have got a problem in Ubuntu Budgie ever since I installed it. I’m
  also a newbie when it comes to Linux and I can’t figure at all how to
  solve the issue. Icons keep moving around in the status bar, including
  added unequal spaces between icons which I have never configured to be
  that way. I have attached a picture below that can describe my issue a
  bit better I hope.
