I had never used/run/heard of fbpanel before this release. I was
seeing the same blank bar and had to do as you suggested:
cp -f /usr/share/fbpanel/multiwindow ~/.config/fbpanel/
To get anything useful. Might want to add this command as part of the
installation process (with a simple file check to make sure
~/.config/fbpanel/multiwndow doesn't exist before copying, of course).
