Exactly same here. What is your OS?
It seems to freeze for no reason, at least not a very obvious one.

So I will now compile xfce4-panel with debug options and run it
through the debugger and wait......until a next freeze. Maybe the
debugger can tell me then where exactly it is hanging.

If confirmed by others as well, then this is a serious bug.
