A few things. First, except for that kwallet issue with (I think)
lightdm I have not had any problems with the various DMs in combination
with different Desktops.
If you're having problems getting/finding a DM that works I think it
points to a problem on your system which should be found.
Second, I have an F28 VM running Mate. I just switched to lxdm for a
test and I've no problems to configure 18 workspaces.

You say "four panels". Does this mean you've added 2 additional panels
to the 2 default ones? You've added panels to the sides?
I haven't yet in this case, but I will, yes. Any two pair of eyes
will indicate an intersection of their lines of sight, but redundancy is
often convenient, especially if the cursor has snuck off into the tuley-
I am also able to select "Add to panel" in Mate and select
from the menu
"eyes" and have "eyes" placed on the panel. Are you saying that
selection doesn't exist for you?
I am indeed saying exactly that, alas!, yes.
An earlier post by "home user via users" says "The executable
will be "/usr/bin/xeyes." Using that as a command (by root) does create
one pair of eyes, but they don't make it onto the panel meny. Do I just
need to reboot? I will in a little while, anyway.
