Shelf Shots

Okay, well, this seems to be a very simple thing. Basically you need to
adjust the way your shelf operates. What it seems to be is you have some
items in the shelf fixed in place/size and therefore E can't actually do
anything on rotate. If the shelf is wider than the screen, it ain't
going to fit :). My suggestion is to move the bat and CPU monitor to
another shelf and have it sitting bottom-right. That way everything will
fit nicely.

Okay, can reproduce now. Trick is maximising in vertical orientation, it
works fine in horizontal.  I'll try and have a look at fixing this.

Again, this always used to happen, but disappearing icons shouldn't
happen anymore. Do you have up to date CVS (0.16.999.035 + fixes) and do you
have any eaps left?

I'll look into this too.
