Yes, Xfce Panel is of type Dock.  I think the problem lay with my having 
the 'autohide' property set.  When it's not set, Sawfish recognizes the 
panels just fine.  I followed Andrea Vettorello advice and it works well 
now.  Thank you Andrea.  Thank you both for your replies.  

I don't know why I haven't been using Sawfish in the past, but it 
certainly is my default WM now.  The amount of customization/
configuration is spectacular.  I love this thing.  

Cheers :)
