With the new behavior of the panel modification introduced a small problem; you can easily move the icon in the panel as an object, with the previous behavior when locking widgets did not happen.

The locked icon on the panel, can move by mistake as an object

I make a short video to better understand

Confirmed. This was always possible in unlocked mode before, but now that we've removed the UI to lock everything, there's no longer an easy workaround to stop this from happening.

I wonder if this should be fixed in the Task Manager to prevent drag-and-drop from the task manager onto the panel it lives on. It's hard for me to see a use case for that.

This happens to me way more often than I'd like to admit :D
