I have multiple panels on my page.

I have 1 set to 1% auto expand (notifications and workspaces at the
bottom left, locked.

At the top, 100%, locked. 

I've been using for quite a long time and not having any issues.

I'm using 4.10.1-1 as compiled by the Debian Xfce Maintainers.

Now, I do get an occasional problem where Xfce4-Term does not allow me
to drag and drop the tabs around from Window to Window or left or
right... but that has been a long time bug in the underlying libraries
libvte (for GTK2 and GTK3)

Good luck!
