Problems with Panel (LXDE)

Sooo unfamiliar with Arch, sorta familiar user of Debian.

Panel shows me two desktops in the Pager … no option to add or dismiss any more.
Network Status Monitor (in the systray) defaults back to “lo” rather than “wanlo” on each reboot.
Volume Control disappears from systray on each reboot.

Wise Gurus, what must be done to minimize constantly running back and resetting minutia on each reboot?
