Hi Lars

Yes, that's true, sorry, the panel always show up on the monitor at

I think Jasper is doing a lot of rework on that for 4.4, but regarding
4.2, I can change xftaskbar so it accepts a command line option to
select the monitor to use for showing the task bar.

So, I've now added the command line option "--monitor=x" to the
xftaskbar (in SVN xfce_4_2 branch only), so in the next version you'll
be able to choose the monitor (and once you've saved the session, it
will be saved along with the session)
