Those changes propably explains why the top and bottom panel went
haywire after I hooked my laptop up to my 43" 1920x1080 LCD TV running
f12 beta and switch the output to the tv.  will test that and disable
those *new* features to narrow it down what causes panels to go berserk
and file a report. It would be good if there's external monitor and dual
or more monitor tests added to the gnome desktop test days this is not
the first and probably not the last the panels go haywire when changing
resolution and or switching between display's.  For instance you no
longer seem to be able to move those panels around screens in dual
monitor setup ( thou you can move application between screens ) in F11.
