is there a z property for panel?
I had to actually go and look to be sure, but yes there is. :-)
And to answer my own question:
It was that 'z' property that was causing me problems. I'd assumed 'z' functioned in pretty much the same way as the CSS 'z-index'. This, as I've just discovered, is not the case. By setting z=999 I was totally distorting the Panel's size & location by changing the camera perspective from which it was being viewed.
I was able to get the behavior I wanted by setting z=1.

Could you boil it down and provide a more simple example? I don't want to
mentally construct your component from your code, and because you have used
custom components, it's not possible to physically copy and paste your code
and get something that will work.
