I'm using panels at both edges. Pager and Taskmanager at the top edge, 
K menu, system tray etc. at the bottom.

Ah, yes, I'm using an older version (180.44-2) of the nvidia driver and 
kernel 2.6.29. When I last tried, a few months ago, more recent 
combinations of driver and kernel resulted in "drop outs", very short 
flickering to a black screen. I'll have to try the current kernel with 
current driver.
