Don't use the 4.2.1 panel, it will eat your configuration (that's why
was released).

And no, this is no a known issue. Could you try and get a backtrace from the
crash with gdb? In a terminal, when xfce4-panel is not running, type:

 $ gdb xfce4-panel
gdb> run
 [wait for the crash]
gdb> bt
 [output of backtrace]
