i want the taskbar to be always on top (that's the way almost everybody has it).
it's just that some applications don't save the info on window location and when they start up they don't start up where they were last time.
so some start centered in the screen, some at the top of the screen.
but for some reason, the applications that start located at the top of the screen, don't take into account that the topmost pixels are "taken" by the taskbar, they start up so that the top of the window is at the very top of the screen (desktop) and so hidden by the taskbar.
some bug somewhere IMO, don't know exactly where, that doesn't take into account the location of the taskbar when calculating "free desktop space".
