For the heck of it, I went into the Ubuntu channel on IRC and asked
if there's a new way of resetting the panels in Ubuntu. One person
said that the method I recommended still works, but would be a pretty
violent thing to do since it would also reset other applications (as
mentioned by someone else in here in this thread). Ubottu recommended
typing this in a terminal to reset the panels:

gconftool --recursive-unset /apps/panel && killall gnome-panel

No idea if it would work, but it's worth keeping it filed away
somewhere in case it's ever needed. (:
