But you didn't enable Extras during install, did you?

It's apparently a new "feature" in Anaconda which removes all apps with broken 
dependencies (if not all apps which aren't in the 5 CDs) during an install, 
rather than giving you the opportunity to fix them up post-install as it used 
to do.

Pan was updated to a new, incompatible version. Backwards compatibility for 
user data apparently wasn't a priority upstream. So it's the upstream Pan 
developers you have to complain to, not Fedora.
