Tumbleweed KDE + compiz, panel wont auto-hide

Fresh install of Tumbleweed KDE with compiz, no problems during installation and everything appears to work fine except for one thing.

With fusion-icon unloaded i can set the panel to auto-hide no problem, and it works no problem. As soon as i load fusion-icon the panel refuses to auto-hide. Has anyone come across this problem and found a solution please or a workaround ?

I was going to remove the panel and just use cairo-dock as a cosmetic workaround, but sometimes it is nice just to be able to access the panel.

Any help is appreciated.
