I've had none of those problems but I don't use folder view or classic
menus nor do I add launcher buttons to panel. I do however use the
analog clock and no issues with that. I have a desktop (uses nv video)
and a laptop (uses intel video) and it sounds as if your problems might
be caused by some 3rd party video driver.

I too am not crazy about the new blue panel (apparently unchangeable)
and for some strange reason, the 'Application Launcher' widget in my
panel on my laptop since upgrade is now a blank document with a question
mark and removing the widget and re-adding doesn't fix that - it looks
tacky.
