Description of problem:
When trying to set the panel's size to "X Small 24 pixels" or "XX Small 12
pixels", the panel still stays about 30 pixels high because of the Gnome Window
List Applet.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Right click on panel
2.Select "Properties"
3.Set Panel to "X Small" or "XX Small"


Actual Results:  The panel won't go any smaller than about 30 pixels high
because of the Window List Applet

Expected Results:  At least "X Small" should have enough room for the Window List.

This is going to depend on your font size. If you have small enough font 
then it should fit.

Conceivably the window list could scale the font down, I guess.

Comment 2 Brent Fox 2002-10-16 19:25:32 UTC
It's not just the window list, but any applet with text in it will also cause
the problem.  For example, if you remove the window list from the panel but
still have the clock applet in the panel, the panel will not get smaller than 24
pixels (at least on my machine).  When I remove the clock, then the panel will
resize to 12 pixels.

Comment 3 Brent Fox 2002-10-16 19:29:13 UTC
On another note, I'm not sure how useful the panel is at 12 pixels high. 
Applets cease to become useful at that size, and the panel icons are so small
that it's impossible to tell what they are.  What about making 24 the minimum
panel size?

This looks like a dupe of bug 68594
