I don't know, I don't use it. Check out the bugzilla, here is a tiny
url to the list of bugs for the xkb plugin: http://tinyurl.com/yj4cow6

If you don't find an existing report, you can help the dev by
providing a backtrace. Start the panel, checkout the pid of the
running xkb plugin instance with "ps ax|grep xkb" -- "pidof
xfce4-xkb-plugin" should do the trick too -- then run an interactive
(gdb) attach <PID>
(gdb) continue

When it will crash you will only notice that it is unresponsive so
keep an eye inside gdb, and then type 'bt':
(gdb) bt
