.xsession-error Log. Excerpt that applies to this issue.
After updating a fresh install of Sabayon 4.1 (from LiveDVD; having followed the instructions at [ http://wiki.sabayonlinux.org/index.php?title=Entropy#Fresh_Install_-_What_to_do.3F ]) Gnome Applets fail to load. Occurs on new and old installations upon upgrading to Gnome 2.26.1 via world update.
! The panel encountered a problem while loading "OAFIID:GNOME_<appletname>".
Do you want to delete the applet from your configuration?
X Don't Delete X Delete
Many people are having this exact issue. See [ http://forum.sabayonlinux.org/viewtopic.php?f=86&t=17160 ]
Steps to Reproduce:
1) Perform World update with equo that includes updating Gnome to version 2.26.1
2) Add an affected applet to a panel if you don't already have one setup. Upon login or adding the applet the error will occur as gnome-panel is loading applet(s)
Additional Builds and Platforms:
According to users in the thread listed above this occurs in both SL Gnome 32 and 64 bit versions.
Initial steps attempted by several people to fix included running the following:
--equo remove gnome-power-manager
equo install gnome-power-manager
--New user/delete configuration files (to make new ones)
--equo remove gnome-applets
equo install gnome-applets
This issue is not brand new, I've seen this in other distros from older versions of Gnome as well (per findings in Google search)

And several others with various solutions but vague.
