From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20020724

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):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install limbo #2
2.run gnome
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.
