Oops! My Tray at the bottom got scrunched to the left (I didn't see how it happened.). This covered up all of the symbols showing open applications and left me "driving blind." I compounded my error by pressing the "Remove this panel" in the 'Panel Settings/Add Widgets/Remove this panel' window which pops up when one right-clicks on the panel itself.

I have Linux i686 and KDE 4.0.4 >= 20080505 "release 15.2"

I have used this 64-bit Linux version successfully for several months. I'm not making as much progress in understanding all the fine points as I had hoped, but I have never had a DISASTER like this.

Is there any hope of my seeing the panel in its original, helpful form again?
