Re: 1/2 Panel == no fun.

I have been having problems with GNOME's panel and enlightenment.  The
following is the thread describing my problem and my ``solution''.  I am
not sure if the problem is really related to enlightenment or to my home
brewed enlightenment theme.  My theme is available upon request to any
enlightenment developer!

Enlightenment 0.16.3.

Well, this problem seems to be related to enlightenment after all.  I
think this .xsession file which solves the problem is description enough:
