My confession would be that I use xfdeskmenu as X session controlling
app and not xfce4, which is in a constant state of flux at the moment.
This way I can easily close and start the panel after every update.

Some things that I can think of, not bugs and most of them probably more
suitable for the xfce4-dev list:
- Get rid of the gtk1 part (it's not very useful, since xfce3 has its 
  own root menu).
- Gnome2 menu system works a bit different then gnome1 I think. It
  would  be nice to have that available as well.
- Graphical configuration.
- perhaps using freedesktop hints instead of gnome hints.

It works nicely as it is now though, so don't be in a hurry to go
changing things.
