If you resize the screen to make it smaller, the panel moves to still
be at the bottom of the screen, but when you resize it to be larger
again the panel stays at the same point so now it is part way up the
screen, obscuring useful stuff.

I think that you need to enable the external display to provoke this
bug, but once it has gone wrong it stays wrong until a restart of the

Here is a sequence that broke it for me:
LVDS screen is 1440x900. turn on VGA screen and set resolution of both
internal and external screens to 1024x768. (give talk). use grandr to
turn off VGA output and reset LVDS screen to 1440x900. Panel is now
part way up screen, and no amount of resizing will fix that. 

This is a long-standing bug present in lenny as well as squeeze.
