Hmmm... that sounds like the panels launch with different hints if set
to autohide, or even do tricks with multiple window. Worse case is if
they later change hints, which could be wrong but still seems frequent
(standards? bah!) and causes havoc to systems trying to match windows
at launch (Sawfish, Devils' Pie, etc).

Full screen applications like video players should be one depth higher
than dock default (defaults, we all know what we Sawfish users end
doing with personal configs). And even if same depth because you
configured it so, or changed depths, they can be behind or above the
full screen one, not always over it. Depths are just limits in what
can go behind or above others, so all windows in layer N will be above
N-1 but below N+1.
