Hi Paul,

If you right click on the panel and look at the properties, there is a 
drop down for the panel's orientation. You can put it on any of the 4 
sides of your display.

I know it isn't quite dragging but it achieves the same thing I guess.

I'm on Ubuntu 9.04 and do not experience these symptoms. I usually have 
20+ tabs open at anyone time too.

We'll need some more info to be able to help you. Version of Ubuntu, 
what spec is your computer, e.g. RAM, Processor, graphics card etc would 
be a good start.
