Well, these days in linux I'm into the "prototypical" . . . and considering
the advice against using it 18.04 Next was/is a very nice system, and
generally the 18.10 system seems to be fine overall . . . just a couple of
complaints, and the one issue was repaired from within apt . . . .

Running that command brings:

"~$ apt-cache policy lxqt-panel
  Installed: 0.13.0-0ubuntu5
  Candidate: 0.13.0-0ubuntu5
  Version table:
 *** 0.13.0-0ubuntu5 500
        500 http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu cosmic/universe amd64
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status"

Thanks for trying to make the information on bugs more clear, so far
generally there hasn't been a need for apport . . .

OK, small price to pay for the time saving of upgrading out of a proto
version . . . not enough of an issue to justify running a fresh install and
setting everything up again . . . .  If there might be some way of fiddling
with the panel in some way I would try to edit/modify something to get the
panel to just "be" at the top when I log in I would make the effort on it.
