SOLVED - xfce4 panel annoyance


I've just spent entirely too much of my life today trying to resolve such a (seemingly) simple problem.

I'm using xfce4 - the panel on the bottom, there are these small gray arrows, I believe they are called 'drawers' but I'm not 100% positive. you can add applications (launchers) to them. Somehow, I have ended up with 5 of them. (I think 1 or 2 would be more then enough).

I can not, for the life of me, figure out, or find out how to delete them from the panel. I've read through my menu.xml's, my panel.xml's and I don't see them. I've tried right/left/middle clicking, dragging & dropping, and even tried staring at them for a long time... nothing has worked... yet.

I'm sure its a WAY too simple solution, and I'm betting someone here knows it.

<edit>

Here is a copy and paste of the beginning of my contents.xml file. I know this is mine, as it has the 'menu' in position 1 and my xfe file manager (both of which I added). BUT one of the gray arrows are found after the console (xfterm4) and anather after the defualt xfce4 file manager.. but I don't see them here.

Wouldn't you know it... after way too long trying to figure this out, I ask the question, and then about 4 minutes later, I solve it.

The popup="1", I changed to a zero. (popup="0")
All is well.

Of course, you could've just right-clicked on the icon with the arrow on it, chosen "Properties..." and there unchecked "Attach menu to launcher" =D
