Hmm, what was the actual situation? I'd like to know the real reason instead
of patching things up. The panel should save all changes to and on exit move this to the final contents.xml. If this
doesn't happen correctly it could be that the panel crashed on shutdown.

Do you have a file still present?

If we can't find the real cause and your patch works, we should do a release.
I'd rather put in a call to write_panel_config () instead of duplicating it,
