AFAIK there are no problems with the panel (except a memleak when
killing/restarting mcs manager, which I don't consider critical).

I'd like to use the 4.1.x notation for the beta releases. Actually, we always
have this problem with overall Xfce version on one hand and specific module
version on the other. Gnome solves this by adding a 4th number for the
specific modules, but I don't think I like that.

Any thoughts on that?
