Nautilus & the panel just crashed. Nautilus was automatically
recovered, the panel did not. I restarted the panel with kill -HUP. 

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.
