I like to organize stuff on my panels, so the Drawer Item is great for this. One of my drawers I have a list of all my processor cores along with a system monitor for them. Problem is every time I shut off my PC or log out the order changes to a different order. I find it really annoying as I want the System Monitor item to always be on the top (it always reverts back to the order in the second image).
Before & After
Creating a completely new Drawer Item and removing the old one with the same layout behaves just like the old Drawer.
