few options for you:
- Alt-f2 (or alt-f1+arrow keys) is your friend. :p
- you can also choose to permanently move either the start menu or the widgets
to the left of the menu bar. :)

Would a toggle to permanently expand/unfold the manager-widget do? Or do you
also want additional features accessible from that QM-widget?

Huh? That should be there now, even if it doesn't look the part, and isn't very
intuitive (devices widget in notification area? Or doesn't that do usb devices
yet? (I can't test this myself due to a different bug)).
