In Gnome 2.4 (currently in Debian unstable), you can right-click an
individual applet (e.g. the menubar, task list, workspace switcher) and
choose "Lock" to prevent that applet from being moved accidentally.

In Gnome 2.6 (not yet released), you will be able to lock down an entire
panel by setting certain gconf keys, and prevent non-root users from
changing the panel.
