reproduce: Add a Child Panel extension to your panel.  Add your favourite
widget to this Child Panel.  Log off and save your settings.  Log back in.
You will see an empty Child Panel.

This bug was annoying me as I have a child panel at the top of the screen 
with the taskbar in it in KDE 1 style (I don't like the way "external 
taskbar" adjusts the widths of the task buttons), and a news ticker in the 
space at the bottom...

This (small) patch to kicker/extensions/childpanel/childpanelextension.cpp 
seems to fix it. It appears that in the ChildPanelExtension constructor, 
someone forgot to call _containerArea->init(), thus not *loading* the 
settings (if you look at .kde/share/config/childpanelextension_..._rc, you 
can see it *saves* them fine). I noticed this discrepancy between that and 
the core Panel constructor and thought something was amiss. =)
