I'm running XFCE 4.2.2 on my C1K with pdaXrom. What I am noticing is that every so often my panel disappears and I am unable to get it back. The taskbar remains accessible, but I cannot right click to get any menus or get to a command prompt. To correct this, I reboot and delete the .config and .cache directories before launching XFCE again.
Anybody else having trouble with this?
It looks like your xfdesktop4 gets killed somehow, and not just the panel.
I had this problem when compiling xfce, after a fresh install it was solved.
Now I don't have such troubles any longer.
In the beginning, when it was less stable on my Z, I saved a session with an aterm running. That way I always had access to a command line.
BTW : do you have any messages when leaving - killing xfce ?
Adding some plugins kills the panel, typing "xfce4-panel &" in an aterm brings it back.
