Has anyone got this combination working?

I could not be able to add icons or starter applications without getting
several errors:

(yelp-bin:68232): Yelp-WARNING **: Could not locate section n for

(yelp-bin:68232): Yelp-WARNING **: Could not locate section n for

(yelp-bin:68232): Yelp-WARNING **: Could not locate section n for

The list goes on...

I want to know if anyone has this combination working, if not, then I
can downgrade to py24-xdg-0.8 as some forum threads said to do.

Here is an example thread:

I may have overlooked something when I only did portinstall gdesklets
and then gdesklets-starterbar.  I got few other gdesklets applets
running fine.  Only the weather did not display any graphics...

Gnome-bar works great...just can't add an application..seems like I have
to edit a python script.

Any insights on what I could be doing wrong with the starterbar or that
if the combination of starterbar and xdg versions are invaild?
