The continuation of this great adventure :)

    6) Check on and off the "Always on top" check box and close the

from a user point of view, you didn't change anything : you just 
activate and deactivate an option, so the final result should be as if 
you didn't make any change ;

    7) Maximize a Window : it cover the panel.
