Taskbar will not stay put in Windows XP Coherence

    In Parallels Desktop build 4.0.3844, I'm running Windows XP Pro SP2 in coherence mode. I want the Windows taskbar at the BOTTOM of the screen. When the VM bootsup, however, it always repositions the taskbar to the top of the screen and I have to manually reposition it. In the coherence preferences the automatically reposition taskbar option is unchecked, and after repositioning it manually, I've locked the taskbar, but it still keeps moving. I would greatly appreciate it if someone could help me solve this problem. IMHO, I see no reason why Parallels coherence mode even needs an automatically reposition taskbar. If the user wants to reposition, they can do it themselves, and it would stay put. Also, I wanted to know as to when the upgrade of Parallels Tools to be compatible with Ubuntu 9.04 be launched?
