I've been struggling with this for a while, and really can't figure out the problem.
On my desktop, i have a few gadgets added through E's menu (Settings > Gadgets). I've added the clock and the systray, and resized / positioned them to my liking. They're near the top right of the screen, but i've tried other positions as well. When E restarts, (either by logging out, or using the Enlightenment > Restart menu entry) the systray gadget appears in the top-left corner, extremely small. If i've logged in again, the icons in it are one or two pixels in size. If i simply restart E, the systray icons don't appear at all. This makes it very difficult to right-click on the gadget to resize it again, as there seems to be a single pixel sweet spot. Now, if i delete the systray gadget, leaving only the clock, the same happens to the clock when restarting. Although it's not quite as small and the displayed time is almost legible. But it is tiny and moved over to the top left of the screen. Wondering if it's a problem with the last gadget added, i've tried adding more after the systray, but it's always the systray the gets so drastically shrunk on restart. Even weirder: seeing as both the clock and the systray exhibit similar behaviour, i tried switching the order in which they're added. I added the systray and resized it (it defaults to the previous one's size, the tiny one in the top left corner). Then i add the clock, and as it appears, the systray shrinks back to near nothing in size in the top left corner. This is without restarting E! I've tried all the appearance options for the systray (fixed, horizontal, and vertical; plain and inset, though they look exactly the same). I can't think of anything else to get a systray to stick, without re-adding it every time i start E. I'm running E 0.21.10 at the moment, but i've had this problem for a long time, probably since 0.19 days. And every now and then, with some versions, i get lucky and i don't have the problem. Although it's quite likely by stumbling around adding/removing gadgets i accidentally found a combination that worked. I've also completely nuked the ~/.e directory a few times in case any stray, leftover settings were to blame. Any ideas if there's some E settings issue? Or perhaps a ./configure flag i'm leaving out (or adding) when building E? Any more information i can provide to track this down?
