For the "Run Application" Menu, you can right click the panel and goto 
"Add to Panel" then you can add the "Run Application" from thier, or you 
can Add the "Deskbar" which does the same thing and more, like searching 
from google, or other search engines.

For the gDeskcal Issues I would have to install it to see if it acts the 
same, but you should be able to create a menu item for it, by right 
clicking the "Application" menu and then going to where you want it. I 
will try to install gDeskcal soon and see if it is a re-occuring issue.
