[Bug 689377] [NEW] Panels fail to appear on Gnome startup on Averatec notebook running 11.04 alpha1

Binary package hint: gnome-panel

I have installed 11.04 'natty narwhal' beta-1 on my Averatec 3280
notebook, and have updated it daily through this morning.

This has a Unichrome display which only supports Gnome in 11.04. This
display has had a number of problems with previous versions of Ubuntu,
mainly documented in bug #495553, but on the initial release of 11.04,
most of the problems seemed to have been solved. (See the last few
comments in that bug report for details).

Starting yesterday, 11 December 2010, a new problem has surfaced. When
the Gnome display comes up, after logging in, either neither panel
appears, or just the bottom panel appears. Once in a large number of
trials, both panels will appear. Currently neither shows up. Yesterday,
after this started happening, I add the Main Menu to the bottom panel,
then created desktop icons for a number of common programs (Terminal,
Firefox, Update Manager, Synaptic, etc.) so I could continue testing and
reporting on the system.

I had previously installed an ssh server and some other shell utilities
to make it easier to access the system when display problems occur.

I am attaching the current output of apt-show-versions to show the
current state of the system. A xorg.conf file has been installed to
solve a screen resolution detection problem - that and some Xorg.0.log
files are attached to the #495553 bug report.
