interesting.  i emerged chpax on my gentoo machine and had a look at the 
config file, and it looks like xfce4-panel requires PSE - "PageExec", 
"SegmExec", and "Emulate Trampolines".  from the man page this means 
that the kernel needs to needs to:
* not enforce paging based on non-executable pages
* not enforce segmentation based on non-executable pages
* emulate trampolines
when running xfce4-panel.  i have only a passing knowledge of this 
stuff, so i'm not going to be much help "fixing it", but i thought i'd 
share what info i could find.
