Package: xfce4-panel
Version: 4.8.6-1
Severity: normal
Tags: upstream

When you enable a second display (e.g. external VGA) which has higher
vertical res than the existing display, then the panel moves to be at
the bottom of the larger display. (This is good - a panel in the
middle of a projection display is unhelpful).

However when you turn that display off (or it is unplugged thus no
longer available), the panel stays where it was and thus is no longer
visible on the remaining display. This is particularly confusing if
you use autohide.

It would be good if the panel noticed these changes in both directions
and calulated its best position whever a screen is added or removed,
in order to keep itself visible on screens that are currently in use.
