Are you saying you have both the panel and the taskbar at the bottom of the
screen, overlapping eachother? If that's the case I'm not surprised it doesn't
work properly.

A common reason for problems with autohide is if you have selected to option
to switch workspaces when the mouse reaches the screen edge. It's part of the
window manager settings and this option is not compatible with panel autohide.
