No and I didn't see the requested information. I might help if you could 
send me the following information:

- screen layout
- location of the panel(s)
- value of 'partial struts': open a terminal, run 'xprop | grep STRUT', 
and click on a panel.

This should not in fact be too difficult to fix, so if someone would 
like to help they could try having a look at the code. I'm sure there is 
a problem there, I just didn't have the time to really look at it.
