Bug#383624: entries misaligned (centred) after re-expand

Package: gnome-panel
Version: 2.14.3-1
Severity: normal

Initially my gnome-panel (the one showing Applications Places Desktop
etc) is expanded along the top of the screen, with the menu entries
aligned from the left hand side. This way I know I can always get to
the Applications menu by throwing the mouse up towards the top-left
corner of the screen.  There is an empty gap in the centre with a
Notification Area on the far right side.

Playing with Panel Properties, I unclick Expand and the entries get
lined up tight-packed in a movable panel in the centre of the screen,
which is fine.

Then I click Expand again to get back to the original state, and now
to my chagrin I see all the menu entries have got themselves pushed
over to the right.  The empty space is on the left and the
Applications menu ends somewhere vaguely in the middle, making it
trouble to go straight to it.

I want the menu entries back on the left again.
