Hiding gnome-panel handles
I have a gnome-panel...panel currently configured on the bottom of my screen. It's in non-expanded mode which leaves two handles on the ends, one on each end, for dragging it aroind. Is there anyway to hide these? Googling has returned little, other than a patch for gnome-panel, and patching source files for something like gnome-panel is WAY over my head.
Note: I saw the similar thread here, but that person didn't seem to find a solution (just letting you know I did search the forum, I'm not a complete newb)
