Hi Bernhard,

What I mean is : if you hide by mistake gkrellm or the panel (ie by
using focus follow mouse and press Alt+F8 while the mouse pointer 
is, by mistake, over the panel frame), how do you make them appear
again ? They are not in the taskbar, in the iconbox, in the root menu
and neither in the alt-tab list. Tell me if I'm wrong.

And yes, when I use a detached menu, I, personally, want it to
receive the focus with Alt+Tab, even if I find that this new 
feature has real advantages.
