So on 14.10 for me I have no such problem. Admittedly, I'm using it in
a virtual machine, but I am using the Lubuntu Netbook with a 640x480
resolution and it works fine.

However, Alt+tab suggests that it's treating it as a window and not as
a dock. Which is interesting. I've tried to replicate it by changing
both lxpanel and openbox settings and I can't get it to happen.

Does the Guest user have the same problem?
