Extra pieces after reassembling derailler

This is a pretty dumb question, but I just reassembled part of my rear derailler after cleaning the jockey wheels, and I couldn't figure out where these pieces go. On a possibly related note, I find that when I tighten the bolts that secure the jockey wheels in place, the wheels don't spin freely. What's going on here.

Here's a picture of the pieces followed by a picture of the partially reassembled part:

One of my first experiences messing around with a bike I made the same error. Had a kind of "what the hell were these used for" experience; easy to overlook them.

Hint: When you have two nearly identical sub-assemblies, do one first so you can look at the other to figure out how it goes back together.

Hint 2: Since you have a digital camera, take pictures of stuff as you take it apart. Then you'll have a reference to check if you get stuck.

+1

You'll be surprised how often this can save you from reassembling something incorrectly.

+1 to the digicam. Saved my life with a Sturmey Archer. Before you pop those bushings back in, give em a coat of grease.
