I might give this a try if I get tired of the taskbar being at the  
top of the window. However, it involves more use of the mouse - which  
I try to minimize.
I would still welcome some clever person coming up with a "force to  
center" option in FM. On the other hand, once one knows of the  
workarounds, the cruddy implementation of taskbar behavior in XP is  
no big deal.
