I'm running Etch with Marillat repo (all updated as of this morning
May 10), and have noticed some recent undesirable behavior within the
last couple of weeks regarding how Gnome handles a request for
Acroread to present .pdf slides in full screen.

Previously, when displaying .pdf slides in full screen using Ctrl+l,
the slides would fill the screen. Now, when displaying full screen,
the Gnome panels remain on the top and the bottom of the screen.

Use metacity's fullscreen mode. You will need to set up a keyboard
shortcut using Desktop > Preferences > Keyboard Shortcuts. In this way
you can toggle fullscreen mode for any application.


That did the trick! Thanks for the tip, Liam. Being able to put any application in full-screen mode will be a handy feature for teaching too.
