Q: Why is the panel always on top?
A: Because it's a better user interface, ...
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Drag a window over the panel
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open a terminal
2. Drag the terminal over the panel

And then, the windows couldn't overlap the panel anymore.
I believe this is due to xcompmgr, which I ran half an hour ago in the
same X-session. Although I killed it, its effects must have influenced
Metacity and thus causing the original bug te occur.
However, as xcompmgr is not included in FC3T3, this would not be
considered as a bug.
