Hmm, this should be a FAQ somewhere...

Q. I can't make the panel and/or the taskbar show up in Xfce 4.2. What's 

A. This is caused by a conflict between the autohide option and the 
window manager setting to change workspaces when the mouse reaches the 
end of the screen. Starting with Xfce 4.2 the top and bottom edges of 
the screen may also be used by the window manager to switch workspaces 
with the mouse. To solve the issue you have to turn off this setting in 
the window manager settings dialog.

I hope that helps.
