Thanks Dotan, Richard and John.

The move to bkup directory didn't work--maybe because I restarted before
trying that.  Creating new panel by right-clicking lower panel let me
re-create new panel.  

For future, though, anyone know location and filename containing default
panels?, user panel?  I created a new user and it came with top panel.
I looked but couldn't figure out how where the info for that is stored.

Thanks,

Sam
