It looks like you are lucky, because with 1.1.0+ there is a hidden
option you can trigger with xfconf-query to reverse the sorting.

Run the following command if the property doesn't exist yet:
xfconf-query -c xfce4-panel -p
/plugins/clipman/tweaks/reverse-menu-order --create -t bool -s true

Or the following if it already exists:
xfconf-query -c xfce4-panel -p
/plugins/clipman/tweaks/reverse-menu-order -s true

To check the value use the next command:
xfconf-query -c xfce4-panel -p /plugins/clipman/tweaks/reverse-menu-order
