Description of problem:
Gnome panel goes under windows. If windows completely cover panel it is
unaccessable. (Requires moving windows around; PITA.) Especially obnoxious if
auto-hide is enabled.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install limbo #2
3.cover panel with window(s), panel is now unavailable.
Actual Results: panel can't be focused without first shuffling windows on desktop.
Expected Results: Panel should (be able to be configured to) float on top, to
be always available.
Now it's always on top.
Fix confirmed with metacity-188.8.131.52-1.
