Works great here. Some things I noticed:

1. Transparency value is 95 at maximum, not 100.
2. When manipulating a launcher and closing the session (with saving)
   the launcher settings are not saved.
3. Moving panel items around often doesn't work properly. For example, I
   have a taskbar, systray and a clock in the upper right. Moving the
   systray to the left of the taskbar and back causes it to be at the
   right side of the clock. Hm. You have to play around with it
   yourself, that's pretty difficult to explain clearly.

Besides, I really love it.
