I was about to say that fbpanel handles this itself (see 
/usr/libexec/fbpanel/make_profile).  But looking at the code, I think I 
see what may be happening.  If you have *none* of the following in your 

rox (rox-filer)
urxvt (rxvt-unicode)

then by mistake it results in a syntax error with sed, which ends up 
making an empty profile.

I just uploaded fbpanel-6.1-5 to sourceware; once it hits the mirrors 
and you install it, please remove your empty 
~/.config/fbpanel/multiwindow and it should work as designed.
