GNOME applet and custom menu


there is one thing that I find not so nice when using GNOME with custom menu (i like it better than the main menu). Everytime I add an applet to the panel, and then select a menu item, any of the applets I have added before is highlighted like I were selecting it as well.

I have seen it in Debian and Ubuntu as well, and not in Fedora (10). Is there any way to correct this in openSUSE manually?

Thanks in advance.
