Description of problem:

On my second screen (:0.1) panels that are placed on bottom and right positions
are invisible, the desktop is shown instead. The space it's supposed to occupy
is taken from existing full-screen windows though. So, if you have a full-screen
window and enable a bottom or right positioned panel, the full-screen window is
shrunk by the size of the panel, the desktop is shown at that position, but
there is no panel to be seen. Richt-clicking on this bar gives a nautilus

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:

Easiest way: enable dual-monitor operation with dual-screen (i.e. no merged
framebuffer), create a panel on the top (otherwise you'll lose it immediately),
click properties and adjust it to be a bottom or right panel, and watch it
disappear. Then of course revert it before OKing it, otherwise your panel will
be lost (but stil float around in the settings :-().

Actual results:

A strip of desktop where I expect a panel.

Expected results:

A panel.

Additional info:

There is a related problem, although it probably isn't caused by panel, I don't
know what application.

When the panel is stopped (by removing it from the session, that seems to be the
only way), and a window is maximised on the second screen (:0.1), the window's
size extends way beyond the actual screen size. This is not an X problem because
xdpyinfo reports the proper screen size. Also when the panel is started, the
problem goes away. Weird. I will report this as a metacity bug as well.
