Unfortunately, this has gotten much, much worse since updating from cvs.
Somehow the contents of ~/.xfce4/settings/xfce-settings.xml got wiped out,
which was generating a "Document is empty" error that prevented
xfce-setting-show from starting up.  Deleting the empty version of
~/.xfce4/settings/xfce-settings.xml allowed me to start xfce-setting-show,
however now i'm getting two panels which refuse to sit anywhere but
vertically along the middle of the left hand side of my screen.  I can't
even drag it elsewhere.
