Icon Display in KDE Panel

I'm using KDE 3.3.2 on Slackware 10.1.

When I set the Panel at the bottom to "Small," everything is fine, but space is a little tight, especially when I have multiple applications in the taskbar.

When I set the Panel size to normal, the applications stack in a double row. However, the application icons(The ones reminiscent of the Quicklaunch bar in Windows) simply scale to the new vertical size of the Panel. I want to know if it is possible to force them to remain the same size they are when the Panel is "small," so I can both fit more of them in the same horizontal space, and have a double row of application buttons, just like I have a double row of application titles in the taskbar.

I hope the question I'm asking makes sense, I'm not really sure if this is a "normal" thing to want.

(I already tried Google, but I had no idea what terms to search for to get an answer)

This should be fixed in KDE 3.4 release.

Thanks. I don't think there's a Slackware package for 3.4 yet; are there other easy(non-RPM) options for doing this? I have tried building KDE from scratch before, when I had this sort of problem, but it never turns out just how I want it...
