I cannot add any applet to any (top or bottom) panel, cannot delete any panel nor create a new panel. When I right-click on the panel the only options available are: Properties, Help or About panels.

I can see when I right-click (bold means clickable):
- Add to panel
- Delete this panel
- New panel
- About Panels
Trying to solve this I did what is usually suggested:
gconftool-2 –-recursive-unset /apps/panel # might be optional
rm -rf ~/.gconf/apps/panel
but I only got a nice empty panel (no Applications Places System, no clock, no shutdown button...) to which I couldn't add any applet, so I decided to take the default profiles in .gconf and .gconfd from a live CD and overwrite mines. Now we are back to the beginning.
I also have tried to lock completely the panel (with both gconf-editor and pessulus) and later unlock it completely but it didn't work.
Here is the system information:
Distributor ID: Ubuntu
Description: Ubuntu 10.04.2 LTS
Thank you very much.
