missing panel


I'm running kubuntu 7.04 on a lenovo laptop.
while debugging a Qt program i'm trying to write, the panel at the bottom of the screen disapeared and I can't get it back.
I had the panel set to immeadiate hidding.
I booted a Knoppix disc and the pannel worked fine.

help would be appreciated.

run this from the terminal and maybe you can fix it with the control panel;
kcontrol -caption "%c"

I'm an idiot...
I got the terminal by clicking the "Run command" from the "log out" menu and then your suggestion and I'm back. Thanks a million.
