> with your task bar positioning, my guess is that somehow you are not ever getting the change saved after you reposition it.
I had a problem like that once, where I added an icon to the panel, but after restarting the desktop, it was gone. IIRC, the cause of the problem turned out to be that while quitting the desktop, some process would crash rather than exit normally; whereas if I had compositing turned off (Alt+Shift+F12) when quitting the desktop, the crash wouldn't happen (and the settings would be saved correctly). So, it's possible that the bug here was actually in the i915 video driver and/or Mesa.
(Incidentally, I've noticed a different bug with the panel: with the panel in pop-up mode and positioned at the bottom of the screen, the area where you need to put the mouse pointer to make the panel pop up will initially be near the top of the screen instead of along the bottom edge; but when you pop up the panel for the first time after starting the desktop session, the activation area moves to its correct location.)
