damn ok ... I hate grabbing bugs ... debugging them is not fun :)

no .. what if you have two panels over each other and you desparately want to
get to the lower one

hmm haven't tested this in a while

no he can't really ... he can add one that will make others not fit ...,
you can't check for applet size before hand ... after a panel is full
the panel will stick the applet on another free panel or fail if
it can't find any free panel

I have ideas about this already ... in the "next version" I want to do
this ... have them only use space not used up already by other panels,
so if you had two edge panels on one side they'd just stack towards the
middle of the screen ... if you had two edge panels metting in a corner,
the one that was there first will get the corner, and the
other one won't (it will end just before the other panel) ...

this will require massive changes to the panel but ultimately is the
"right thing to do"(tm)

yup .... so what ...

patient: doctor .. my head hurts when I shake it ... 
doctor: don't shake it then

if the user has to actually try to get some bad behaviour, it's ok ...

> Autohide should be feasible for corner panels as well as edge panels.

yup ... I got many requests for this already ... but I haven't
gotten around to doing it yet

there's a lot more wrong with the fish then that

btw ... what is menu "appletette" ??????? you mean menu applet? ... if
so it should allow changing the tile in the global config ...
