Hi Mike,

this is not the same problem.
The panel always gets displayed when I move to the bottom of the screen,
but not long enough.
I suppose that at this moment KDE considers that the mouse cursor is not
over the menu any more and therefore auto-hides it.
I suspect there might be some special moves of the cursor right after
initial display of the panel that enable persistent display of the menu,
but I did not manage to guess any logic that would consistently lead to
this expected behaviour.
When it occurs though, the menu may remain displayed indefinitely.
