If you simply type shutdown in a terminal or console you kill the panel, which
will cause changes to not be saved. This was introduced to avoid being unable
to start the panel after you added a plugin that crashes.
So, if you are not using the xfce session manager, you can restart the panel
after making changes either from the right-click menu on a panel handle, or by
sending a USR1 signal (pkill -USR1 xfce4-panel).
Please don't CC me on list mail.
