I use Kubuntu, not Ubuntu so this may not work for you.  I got rid of 
the taskbar ages ago, as it just took up real estate on my kicker 
panel.  Now, when I have something minimised (or behind a maximised 
window) I just do an <Alt><Tab> and get a window list on the current 
desktop.  That will bring back the "lost" window...



Wulf Credo:
Respect the elders. Teach the young. Co-operate with the pack.
Play when you can. Hunt when you must. Rest in between.
Share your affections. Voice your opinion. Leave your Mark.
