... And as far as the cashew, having one on a panel indicates that
widgets are /not/ locked. You can move stuff around, delete, add, etc.
Lock Widgets (all plasma uses the same lock so it doesn't matter whether
you lock it on a panel, or the desktop, or using a cashew somewhere, it
locks all panels and the desktop together), and the panel cashew should
disappear. Unlock them again using an activity/desktop cashew or by
right-clicking on a plasma element (desktop, panel, etc).
Finally, if your panel plasmoids won't go or stay where you want, try
adding a spacer, using the button found on the panel resizer widget (kde
4.3+, 4.2 needed the spacer plasmoid from kde-look). The spacers are of
limited power in the presence of "greedy" plasmoids, but can often get a
plasmoid to stay where you want it on a panel, if you have "extra" space
on that panel.
