On F13, upgrade gnome-panel to version in updates-testing and you'll get
panel crashes almost immediately when tryign to start an application or
just logout of gnome. Soo, if we were using rawhide, almost every gnome
user would be having crashes soon as they upgrade (minus the ones that
watch for breakage first before they upgrade). Anyway, perfect example
to test first (cuz maintainer might have accidentily missed something),
and not just update straight to the branch.
