If you have 1 icon, it goes to exactly the same place with left/bottom
I don't usually have more than one. Sometimes I do though and I see what

In this case I meant on top of any other windows.. sorry. Currently
if I have more than one it gets hidden under the spot where I like to
keep the clock. I'd prefer it to be on top of the clock but at the
bottom of the screen, I guess.
Really none of this is earth shaking since after all there is the right mouse.
Part of my trouble with icons is that I like a large `virtual' desk
so if an icon goes to one corner, its pretty unhandy to find quickly.
I was hoping for top or bottom to be central top/bottom I guess.

I think I have 3.8.18 installed but there doesn't seem to be any easy
way to determine the version. xfce --version starts it up instead
man xfce draws a complete blank on version.
xfwmrc --version (no soap)
Apparently it was one of the low colesterol items.
My source toplevel dir has a file named xfce-3.8.18.lsm. So I guess
this is it. I didn't notice tasks/icons going to the panel. My
panel has some Icons on it. But they are not apps that I iconized
during a no use period.

First you make icons, them eliminate them.. Not sure I get the reasoning.
