I'm using xinerama, and due to differing screen resolutions I've been
forced to put my rox panel at the top of the screen instead of the
bottom as to avoid it falling into the deadzone. This works rather well
with my window manager of choice, openbox3, which complies with struts
and raises the panel accordingly.
The only trouble is that it's very easy to accidentaly mouse over the
panel strut when you actually want to access a window's titlebar, say,
to maximize/minimize/restore. The panel then gets raized, and I have to
use a key combo to raize the window over the panel again and try and be
more exact with my mousing.
The topic of maximising windows over the panel has been much discussed
on the list, but I can't seem to find information on how to increase
the panel's strut area so that windows don't maximise over the panel at
all. I wouldn't want to do this were my panel located on the bottom,
but the current situation is sub-optimal. Could someone point me to
where I can find the strut area option? Is this a hard-coded setting or
is there a configuration file I can hack? I don't mind the former, but
I don't know where I can find the option in the source.
