Hi Andre,

I have added panels I put images in, and I stack and move them around. 
The order seems to persist for one reboot, then the panel with widgets 
seems to migrate to "the edge", as though it prefers to be there.

But I can reorder them again.

Could be a similar issue. I could do this and have them stick forever in F7.
