This is a fairly recent addition to libxfcegui4, so it may be that you
don't have it yet (also it seems the linker is not giving very useful
error messages ;-)

1) It's called 'panel' ;-)

2) Do you mean the panel doesn't unhide? Just to be sure, turning into a
5 pixel high bar_is_ the autohiding. You get the panel back by moving
your mouse over it. It should hide in the direction of the nearest
screen edge so that if you put the panel on one of the edges-- which is
the only logical place anyway, IMO -- it will be very easy to hit it
with the mouse pointer.
