I lost the panel clock after upgrading Evolution. What happened?

Novell Cool Solutions: Question & Answer

Q:
I'm running NLD with Gnome patched up from ZLM.

My clock applet has disappeared from my Top Panel - apparently as an unintended consequence of my changing screen resolutions on my Thinkpad T41P.
The problem I am having is that I cant seem to get the Clock Applet back on my top panel.When I right click on the Top Panel and choose Add to Panel -> Accessories -> Clock I get the following error:

-------
"The panel encountered a problem while loading "OAFIID:GNOME_ClockApplet".
Details: Failed to resolve, or extend
'!prefs_key=/apps/panel/profiles/default/applets/applet_11/prefs;background=none:;orient=down; size=x-small;locked_down=false
Do you want to delete the applet from your configuration?"

A:
This is a known issue. You are probably running evolution from the evolution-snapshots. This will break the clock and the address book applets because they are for the evolution build that comes with NLD. If you were to backrev all of your evolution stuff then they would start working again, but then you loose the calendar and address book option.

We are currently working to solve this issue.
