Sorry about that.
When I mouse over the icon in the panel, I get "Xfce Menu" as expected.
I click on it and nothing happens.
Right-mouse click on the desktop or xfdesktop -menu in a terminal do nothing.
Center-mouse click on the desktop or xfdesktop -windowlist in a terminal give me a window list, as adverised.
My take is that I'm close, but it's some little thing.
