Hmm, thanks for that. That works when moving windows around - they
"bang" into the sides of the panels now, instead of hiding under/over
them, but I am still free to resize the window (either manually or with
the maximise button) under any panel.

The GNOME panels have an "Avoid on maximize" option in their settings,
which is enabled, but it doesn't seem to do anything.
