I forgot to mention that I use kde 4.2.2.

I've tried to completely remove xfce4 and reinstall it, but the problem 
I can reproduce this behaviour with a new user account.
1. create new user
2. log in to xfce with this user
3. start korganizer and kopete
4. log out <--- here, xfce panel (system tray, at least) kind of freezes for 
about 30 seconds
