(Possibly related to #8423 - but looks like it's not so a new issue)
Windows 7 - QGIS 2.0.1

  • Open the processing panel
  • Drag panel so it is no longer docked with QGIS
  • Release panel so it is floating.
  • Now try to re-dock it.

While it will re-dock if the panel is in the right place, the grey bit doesn't pop out to show that you are currently in a "dockable" position. This seems to be intermittent and can apply to other panels too.

The "this is a dockable place" bit does always show up when you initially toggle floating from docking. I.e. this way it always works:
  • Panel is docked.
  • Drag panel away from dock. Keep dragging - new dockable locations will appear correctly.

Hope that's clear.
