Neither can I from your description.

Can you find the Gnome Control Center and try changing some settings?

Middle clicking and right clicking on desktops bring up stuff too.

well I cant go all the way to the top with the drag box it stops about 6 cm from the top of the desktop

Also it splits my desktop image right there at that line I dont know what it is its really wierd almost like the desktop stops there but it doesnt cause I see the bottem of the desktop image starting again its been there ever since I changed the window manager I changed it back of cause I like sawfish but anyways I also restarted and its still there...
