'Node' panes can have two titles or have two title areas.
Content that comes into a pane is already formatted, and this happens
in theme('node'). theme('node') assumes it will be printing a title
most of the time. However, Panels wants the titles of panes to be
consistent, so it removes the title from the node to prevent your
node.tpl.php from printing it. The result is often an empty h2 which
has odd effects.
Add an if statement to your node.tpl.php to prevent printing that h2
if $node->title is empty.

Internet Explorer is really bad about making the rightmost panel
fall beneath the others.
Internet explorer calculates margins and padding differntly from
everyone else, and this makes it entirely too easy for widths
to add up to greater than the amount of allotted space, despite
using percentage widths.
There are two solutions to this problem:
1) In your theme, try to eliminate padding from the the <div>
that directly contains your content; you can do this by
adding an empty <div> inside it that surrounds the content
and very specifically is set to margin: 0 and padding: 0
2) if that doesn't work, override the widths of the panel-panel
divs and reduce them by 1 or 2%; usually this will give IE
enough space to quit pushing things around.

TinyMCE, FCKEditor and other wysiwyg editors really blow up on Panels
and these editors are too much for them. Also, these editors get
cranky about complicated forms with several text areas.
Disable these editors on all of your panels admin pages. The important
URLs are admin/panels/* and panels/ajax/*. More details instructions
may follow if someone familiar with these systems submits a patch at
the above drupal.org URL.

The rounded corners style shows up as just a small graphic rather than
a full box around the panels as it shoujld.
The rounded corners CSS relies on the ID for the panel, but the ID is
Make sure your panel has an ID of some sort. With mini panels there is
no easy workaround as mini panels currently do not have IDs of their

You see a message similar to this:
Table 'drupal.panels_info' doesn't exist query: SELECT * FROM panels_info
WHERE path = 'front_page_new' in...
The important piece of information is 'panels_info'.
The Meta Tags module (also known as nodewords.module) directly reads the
the panels tables and modifies its forms to add the tags. Unfortunately
for this module, Panels has changed *greatly* in the leap from 1.0 to
2.0 and the tables aren't the same. However, the nodewords module doesn't
yet know this. Look in the nodewords issue queue for panels patches and
you should find something.

When using the secure pages module, the Panels administrative UI gives
unhelpful "An error occurred" popups when trying to add or edit content.
The secure pages module tries to move the entire administrative section
of the site to HTTPS, but Panels' AJAX calls are using a path that
secure pages doesn't know about. When trying to make non-secure ajax calls
from a secure page, the browser denies the call.
The solution is to simply add panels/* to your Secure Pages configuration.
