    what do you mean?
    switch what buttons? (what do they look like? what do they do?)

    switch the buttons from what to what? (red to blue? sorted by
    ascending to descending? square to round? what?)

    what is a "Gnome window list"? (it list windows, or does it list
    desktops?)

    what do you do with the 'Gnome window list'? (close windows, as in
    application windows)

    like how do you open the "Gnome window list" and what do you see when
    you do: "windows" like Firefox, Nautilus, OpenOffice.org and
    etc....and, you click on a square, red button to make Firefox jump to
    full screen....or what?

    were you ever able to "switch the buttons" and suddenly you can't? did
    you recently update via YaST?

    sorry, i can't help until i understand the question..

    by the way, which version of openSUSE are you using?

    @see

    its the default panel applet for selecting windows. its a list of buttons of the current windows in the panel and when you click on them, the window pops up

    switch the buttons from what to what? (red to blue? sorted by
    ascending to descending? square to round? what?)
    i want to re-order the window list, thus moving a window button to the left or right. i wanna press a button, keep it pressed and move the button to the left or right.

    were you ever able to "switch the buttons" and suddenly you can't?
    in each and every version of gnome until the one delivered with openSuse 11.2

    ok, i see where it says (on page you referenced) "You can change the
    order of the Window List buttons by dragging a button to a different
    location on the Window List."

    so, you should be able to do it...i wonder if any other 11.2 Gnome
    user is also having this problem ??

    and, wonder what graphic card/chip you have, and if any/all others
    with this problem use the same..

    and, i wonder if you disable "desktop effects" if you will then be
    able to move the buttons around..

    (i'm thinking you have found a bug, that _may_ be graphics chip specific)

    yes, sometimes my english is a bit limited.

    so, it sounds like you have found a real bug, your next stop should be
    here: http://en.opensuse.org/Submitting_Bug_Reports

    where the first step is to search the list of bugs to see if yours is
    already reported..

    ah...since the coder thinks nothing has changed ("I'm 99.9% sure
    nothing changed in this area, so there's no reason for this
    to not work") you need to add a reply to that bug report...because,
    obviously something has gone wrong, somewhere..

    Hi
    Do you have desktop effects enabled? If so disable and see if it's
    working.
