I found a solution (for xorg Zaphod mode): lxpanel
It looks similar to the Xfce panel, but is completly independent.
It has its wown workspace switcher and it works!

I am still looking for way to add a generic application starter applet
like the Xfce Launcher.

My self defined Xfce keyboard shortcuts also do not work on the second
display, so currently I cannot start any program with just a click or
keyboard action. I have toi enter them manually in a xterm.
Still a little bit messy...
