fbpanel should be replaced by its successor, lxpanel

See http://www.gnomefiles.org/app.php/LXPanel for detail.
LXPanel is derived from fbpanel.
While preserving almost all functionality of fbpanel, it comes with much more, and it's actively maintained.
Besides, all configuration can be done through GUI preference dialog, and there is no need to edit the config file.
The memory footprint is still kept small, too.
IMHO using this to replace fbpanel is a better choice.
