First, use the goodies list for plugin problems, you will probably
receive more response there.

Well compile with debug, maybe the debug output can tell you something.
If the plugin crashes directly you need to convert the plugin to an
internal plugin,
if not (it works when you dnd the plugin, but crash when close the add
dialog), you
can attach gdb to the battery app with:
    gdb xfce4-battery-plugin `pidof xfce4-battery-plugin`
