gnome panels impinge on acroread full screen mode

In FC5, when you put acroread in full
screen mode, it doesn't really go FULL
screen -- the gnome panels are still
evince does not behave this way, but there
are still PDF files for which acroread does
a better job.
this is NOT a trivial problem for those of
us who travel/teach with laptops and make
full-screen PDF presentations.
pushing the panels back on an ad-hoc basis
is a kludge.
there have been various posts on the web
about dealing with this under debian but
I have not seen anything for FC. Thanks.
I just noticed that if the panels are
hidden by enabling (and using) the hide
buttons, the results are much more satisfactory
than when enabling auto-hide. Still feels
like a cludge but it works better.
Fixed in metacity 2.15.x. (FC5 used metacity 2.14.x) See
http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=343115. Affected lots of apps besides
In other words: should be fixed in rawhide.
