OK, so now I understand a bit better.  I wonder if there's more than one issue 
here, though.  This 'jumping about' - Connie, could it be that you are seeing 
the result of a sort order?  By default the application icons on the taskbar 
are sorted alphabetically.  I didn't like this, and found a way to change it.  
Unfortunately, at this moment I can't remember how it was done.  I'll look 
into that tomorrow and report back.

I haven't tried controlling things by using spacers.  I did find that I'm 
happier with the panel set to show two rows for open applications.  Don't know 
whether that will help Connie or not.

New to KDE4? - get help from http://userbase.kde.org
Just found a cool new feature?  Add it to UserBase
