Hi All,

I have an upcoming new build of Fedora 30 for a customer.
I wanted to put Xfce on it, but 4.13 way too buggy to
unleash on the general public, especially with all
the talking up of Linux I have been doing.

Well the two deal killer bugs are


Where programs disappear from Panel 0, and panels 0
and 1 occasionally go missing at start up.

Well, one of our intrepid heroes on the Xfce bugzilla
gave me this command to use:

    xfce4-panel -r

And it works perfect on missing panels and panels with
missing programs.

I will put the above command in start up with a five
second delay and make a desktop launcher for it too.

So Xfce 30 is back on!  Yippee!
