Comment 9 for bug 537115


This patch is to resolve this issue, if mouse leave icon, but still in
inside dock, and sub-dock didn't pop up, it shrinks. This patch works for
sub-dock case.
With this patch, I can completely replace gnome-panel with cairo-dock.

This patch hasn't been tested against dock that is vertical.
