Annoying feature in KDE 3.5

Hi. I've just upgraded my fc4 box to KDE 3.5.
The first time I initiated a session with it, a hitherto unknown feature (for me, at least) appeared. It's a menu bar that sits on the top edge of the desktop. As far as I was able to determine, it's called "menubar" and its function seems to be to control several properties of applications that are active. It also replaces several toolbars for these applications.

Does anyone know what I'm talking about? I would like to know where are the manual and the configuration settings for this feature. In principle, I would like to get rid of it, since it takes a substantial amount of the desktop and I would like to have the usual toolbars back.

Thanks.

Just right click on it, and configure it how you need to. You adjust the bar size, the icon size, colors, tranparency, and much more. Have fun.

Hi, grndplane. Thanks for your input...

That does not seem to work for me.
When I right-click on the bar the options are:

Add Applet to Menubar...
Add Application to Menubar ->
Remove From Menubar ->
------------------------------------
Add New Panel ->

-----------------------------
Lock Panels
Help ->

Is there any description of this feature anywhere?

Thanks.

So there is another panel, right? Well right click on it and in the menu there should be an option like "Remove panel" or something, there a submenu pointing to all panels in your desktop, just click on menubar.

By the by as far as i know menubar does not show up just because, it has to be added by the user so your probably (accidentally) put it right where it is.

It didn't kill me to help you, would it kill you to say whether it worked or not? And what about thanks?

I may be wrong as I use localised version, but it should be changeable in Desktop-->Behavior in KDE Control Center.

There should be the option "configure panel". By the way this panel is called the kicker and is your main entrance to everything. Why do you want to remove it?

Yep! That's it. Thanks PeTzZz.

Grndplane: It's not the kicker, it's the Menu Bar.
You can modify in Configure Desktop -> Behaviour -> Menu Bar at Top of Screen -> None.

I don't know why kde 3.5 started this feature. I've never asked for it. Perhaps it's the default behaviour now...

Oh sorry. I thought that was the panel you were talking about. I don't think the menu panel was turned on, on my KDE.
