:Q. I can't make the panel and/or the taskbar show up in Xfce 4.2. What's 
:A. This is caused by a conflict between the autohide option and the 
:window manager setting to change workspaces when the mouse reaches the 
:end of the screen. Starting with Xfce 4.2 the top and bottom edges of 
:the screen may also be used by the window manager to switch workspaces 
:with the mouse. To solve the issue you have to turn off this setting in 
:the window manager settings dialog.
:I hope that helps.

changing, but obviously there are plenty of other ways to move from 
workspace to workspace.

Thanks again,
