gnome-panel PagerApplet hates me.

Hi. I have a weird problem which may not be ob3's fault, but perhaps some of you might have experienced a similar issue. I've been using ob3 for a couple of weeks now, and it's coming along nicely. I have what I consider to be a typical .xinitrc file:
display -window root ~/pics/backgrounds/Crystal-1280x1024.jpg &
gnome-panel --disable-sound &
xautolock -time 20 -locker "xlock +usefirst -lockdelay 10" &
That's the relevant parts. When I type "startx" at the prompt, gnome-panel's pager applet bitches at me with a message like this:
The panel encountered a problem while loading "OAFID:GNOME_PagerApplet"
Details: Unknown CORBA exception id: 'IDL:omg.org/CORBA/COMM_FAILURE:1.0'
Do you want to delete the applet from your configuration?
[ X Don't delete ] [Delete]
The weird thing is, if i start an xterm, kill gnome-panel, and run gnome-panel --disable-sound & manually, it works without a hitch.
Does anyone know why this is? I'm running gnome-panel from gnome 2.4 (gentoo ~x86 portage).
