this has nothing to do with xfce. nautilus is a part of gnome. perhaps
it hasn't launched gconf properly, or maybe it requires gnome-settings-daemon
(which it shouldn't, since that's stupid, but who knows).

it appears the binary's name changed, and you had an old panel config file
that was migrated to the new config location. we're not going to modify
your setup for you.
