Removing the directory .gconf and if you have it, .gconf2 and restarting gnome will get you your panel back. Note however, that you will have to reset ALL preferences after doing this since this restores the default Gnome configuration. Also, I wouldn't recommend doing it while running Gnome. I would drop back to a "runlevel 3" or whatever Ubuntu uses as a console runlevel before doing this. It may not be necessary, but ripping a running process' configuration files out from under it seems a bit rude :-)

Certainly it would be a technological faux pas if ever I saw one...
