Odd. I have been using Xfce full time here on my laptop for weeks with 5-6 day uptimes before I reboot for a new kernel and I haven't seen this. ;(
Any more info as you see it would be welcome.

Well, I guess it happened after second start of XFce, had 1 day uptime before.

Will have a look after weekend whether is it still happening.
I know what's happening here...
I set the option "Save Session" on and probably the xfce4-panel died, I quit the XFce and the session manager saved it so I have no xfce4-panel set to exec on XFce's start.
Might be confusing but... why not. I guess we can close it now. ?
Ah, that would do it.
Yeah, I'll close this now. Feel free to reopen or file a new one if you spot anything further on it.
