menu button
 - the gnome settings daemon crashes from time to time
 - The clock applet seems to be missing. 
 - gnome-volume-control gives the startup error 
   "No volume control gstreamer plugins or devices

Please, help me. Is there something trivial I
Should I better go back to Gnome 2.8? Is someone
running the new Gnome

Other fixes are under way, yet time is an issue to
