Description of problem:
I enabled "Show hide buttons" on the panel, then the Main Menu button
didn't work. I right-clicked it and noticed it was locked, so unlocked
it, then it worked again.
If I remove the hide buttons, it's OK, but if I then switch places
with the Mozilla icon, then switch back again, Main Menu works but
Mozilla doesn't! If I right-click the Mozilla icon at this time I get
the panel menu.
I haven't explored all the permutations, but this is definitely
I guess what's happening is that the panel hide buttons override the
locked status of the Main Menu, but other icons aren't informed.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Enable Show hide buttons in Panel properties
Actual Results: Main Menu stops working
Unlock main menu
Main menu now works
Put something else in leftmost position
Now this doesn't work!
Expected Results: Show hide buttons has no adverse effects
