Hmm... I believe this is pretty much how it does work (and certainly
seemed to when I tried it there just now)-- I vaguely remember the
original discussions about it three or so years ago.  Maybe it needs
some tweaking, but I've never had a problem with it personally.

Panel launchers go right to the edge of the screen for me-- which
version of GNOME are you using?  I can't comment on Inkscape though,
I've never really used it.
