Package: lxpanel
Version: 0.7.2-1
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

I have two monitors.  By default lxpanel appears at the bottom
of monitor 1.

With the panel here, if I maximize a window on monitor 1 the
bottom of the window expands up to the top edge of the panel.
If I maximize a window on monitor 2 it expands to the edge of
the screen because there is no panel.  This is correct.

I configured the panel (via its inbuilt preferences dialog) to
appear only on monitor 2.  Now if I maximize a window on either
monitor it expands to the edge of the screen.  The bottom of
maximized windows on monitor 2 are hidden behind the panel.

What it should do is that on monitor 2 where the panel is now it
should leave a margin as it did when it was on the other monitor.
