Dear Sebastien,

thanks for your quick reaction. Absolutely ok that you've reassigned the
bug.

I'll try to answer all your questions and give you the result of some
more research that I have performed. Perhaps it will be helpful.

1) Panel width: The panel is "expanded" to full screen size which is
1280x1204. The "panel size" is 24 pixels and the orientation is
"Bottom".

2) No, maximizing a window doesn't help.

3) I think that bug #34713 is about the same thing, indeed.


Some more research:

I) First experiment:

1) I start with a maximized application "Firefox" (one that opens full screen on my computer).
3) I resize the window a little bit so that the icon still fits into the window on the desktop switcher --> icon stays
2) I resize its window till the icon does not fit inside the window on the desktop switcher --> icon disappears
3) I resize its window till the icon fits inside the window on the desktop switcher --> icon reappears
(this can be done by just dragging the window size. I even do not have to let loose of the mouse button.)

II) Second experiment:

1) I start with a maximized application "Firefox" (one that opens full screen on my computer).
2) I drag and drop the panel with the workspace switcher on it from "Bottom" to "Top" (which is of the same size, of course) --> icon disappears
3) I drag and dropt the panel back to its original position --> icon won't come back
4) I start a new maximized application "Evolution" (one that opens full screen on my computer) on another workspace --> none of the applications shows an icon.

The icons wont't reappear from this point. The only way (so far) is by
pressing <CTRL>+<ALT>+<BACKSPACE>

Greetings, André
