The difference between Gnome Classic and Gnome Classic (no effects) is that the former runs Compiz. It seems Compiz has a Unity plugin, which if enabled, will bring forth that panel and menubar that is annoying you. See this link I found on the Ubuntu forums. The poster there used CCSM to disable the plugin. I don't know if that's the best way (CCSM doesn't have a great reputation, to say the least). You can search this site for alternatives to using CCSM.
