Then you need to upgrade GNOME or E - when I maximise a window it always
stays within the confines of the panels (I have two, one at the top of the

Recent versions of E ship with multiply keybinding.cfg files - find the one
for people using gmc as the desktop and use that one instead.

use any of their applets - they can all be disabled.

I still strenuously oppose the idea of having an official GNOME wm
