This is very unlikely to be caused by gnome-panel itself, it looks like
a bad interaction between nautilus and gnome-session.

Are you sure there are not nautilus processes that continuously start
and exit? Are there any error messages that repeat themselves
in .xsession-errors?

To link it with another bug, is nautilus managing the desktop? i.e. is
the /apps/nautilus/preferences/show_desktop GConf key set to true?
