Hey, thanks for that tip!  I hadn't thought of doing that, myself.
After upgrading to the newest panel, everything was getting shoved
over towards the left.  Adding a separator, moving some things around
and then enabling expansion on the separator did the trick! 

I really have come to like Xfce a lot.  It's a very well written (coded)
project.  The ease of upgrading components is just amazing.  Everything
just compiles with no need for new patches or other tinkering.  And the
web site is positively brilliant in both its organization and aesthetic
appeal.  Other projects could take a lesson from Xfce, for sure!

Keep up the great work, people!  :-)

P.S. My clock applet is still crashing, though.  Have had to disable
it for the time being.  :-(
