Description of problem:
on the preferences for sliding panels, you can only position them to the right
or left. a centered option would be quite handy, particularly for CDE style panels.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
The positions in the properties dialog for the
sliding panel are just the side to offset from, you can drag the panel
wherever you want, including the center. I think the dialog is just leaking some
implementation details it shouldn't.
In any case, moving to http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=95136
(we don't typically make UI changes like this on the Red Hat level). Should add
comments to the gnome.org bug for the panel developers to see.
