Yes, I've seen this as well, though I was too disinterested to track it
down, and my workaround was simply "don't change the color".
If you'd like to get debugging data, compile the plugin passing
- --enable-debug=yes to configure, then add the plugin to the panel. Find
the PID of the plugin ('ps eax | grep systemload' or similar should do
it), and then run:
gdb $prefix/libexec/xfce4/panel-plugins/xfce4-systemload-plugin $PID
where $prefix is the panel's installation prefix, and $PID is the PID
found above. This should attach to the already-running process. Type
'c' at the (gdb) prompt to allow it to continue running. Then go and
change the color and make it crash. type 'bt' at the (gdb) prompt, and
copy and paste the output into a bug report on bugzilla.xfce.org.
