We have to work with what we have. If we have an icon sizing bug,
doesn't this indicate that the panel, as it is now, wont function
properly? Like a dual panel setup?
Another thing, xfce is not updated on a regular basis like gnome. Who
knows when this bug will be fixed; maybe never. So this means that we
have to go with this current, obviously faulty, solution for...?
Wouldn't make more sense to use the panels as they were conceive at
the first place? Because in the original configuration they work
pretty good.
