Description Gauthier Brion 2011-07-16 21:20:24 UTC
Version:           unspecified (using KDE 4.6.2) 
OS:                Linux

When we are using an application in full screen mode, we are often annoyed by the panel (in my case it is on up side) when working near it.
A timer could avoid loads of problem because "accidental move" won't make the panel appear immediatly.

Solutions I would like : We must stay one or two seconds on the border of the screen in order to show the panel. (Like on a Ubuntu 11.04 I tested recently with unity)

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
- Put your main panel on top of the screen
- Set your panel in "auto-hide" mode and increase a little bit the height
- Launch Chromium browser in full screen
- Try to change your current tab page, or to reduce the window by double clicking on the title bar

Actual Results:  
We often go a little bit to far with the mouse and the panel show immediatly and we can't reduce or change tabs anymore

Expected Results:  
Accidental move on the screen border shouldn't call directly the panel, we should wait 0.5 or 1 second with the mouse on the screen border for making it appear.

I do not like any delay, so if the delay is added, it should be configurable.
