I must have accidentally stuck the window in the incorrect state.  With 
XFCE 3, I'd always see "Sent to -->" as one of the choices.  Perhaps 
when I unstick the window, I'll get that feature back.

I'll laugh with you, and I'm even older than that!  :-)  Guess I'm a bit 
ignorant about the behavior of the sticky button feature.  I'll check up 
on it and educate myself on this point.  Thanks for the quick response!
