Thanks for the good work and for the response, Martin--I thought my last
message to you was lost. I was attempting to test and respond to
launchpad--I'll be glad to help test and so on if I can just negotiate
the initial hurdles. Yes, I'm running 8.04--
By the way, I had found a workaround at
http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=278954 from Vincentvee:
"yeah i got the same problem, i fixed it, hit alt+f2 type gconf-editor
got to apps on the left menu, then go to panel>toplevels>panel_0 you
should have a value on the right called y_bottom which is set at -1 by
default, what you should do is increse that value to a positive value, i
used 10, that made my panel stick to the bottom when un-expanded.
good luck with it..."
Sorry I didn't share this earlier and
