    XMonad: un-removable gray windows at startup

    I just upgraded my netbook to 12.04 and decided it would be fun to try XMonad. I'm running XMonad + GNOME. Everything works great out of the box... except...

    Three panels appear at startup: the desktop and two gray panels (as shown on the right in the screenshot). I can't remove/close the two gray panels with ctrl+shift+c. And I can't fill them with applications/windows. So they're just pointless. Why?? What am I doing wrong? How can I get rid of them? Augh!

    I've been moving the two gray panels to another workspace and ignoring them, but I'd rather understand what's going on.

    Any help appreciated!

    Re: XMonad: un-removable gray windows at startup

    I just grabbed one of the templates from the XMonad site to start with. I couldn't find anything in there that seemed related.

    I figured out part of why the gray panels showed up: I selected the "GNOME and XMonad" option at login. When I run
    Code:
    pkill gnome-panel
    the two gray panels disappear. And running
    Code:
    gnome-panel &
    brings them back. So clearly GNOME and XMonad aren't meshing well at startup. Does anyone know why this is happening in the first place?
