Comment 43 for bug 805252

Is it possible to complete eliminate (or hide) the Nautilus menu on the desktop?

I have just accepted the automatic update from Ubuntu Natty to Ubuntu Oneiric,
I am using the fallback mode of Gnome 3 (gnome-panel instead of gnome-shell:,-long-live-gnome-panel! ),
and I was not used to this bar on the desktop.
