Programs crash when changing orientation of xfce4-panel

just while trying to find a bug in my xfce4-dict-plugin I changed the
orientation of xfce4-panel(from vertical left to horizontal bottom and
reverse) several times and I noticed that Sylpheed and Geany crashed

I started then Geany in gdb to get some more information and I got:

The program 'geany' received an X Window System error.
This probably reflects a bug in the program.
The error was 'BadAlloc (insufficient resources for operation)'.
  (Details: serial 359609 error_code 11 request_code 53 minor_code 0)
  (Note to programmers: normally, X errors are reported asynchronously;
   that is, you will receive the error a while after causing it.
   To debug your program, run it with the --sync command line
   option to change this behavior. You can then get a meaningful
   backtrace from your debugger if you break on the gdk_x_error()

Program exited with code 01.
(gdb) bt
No stack.

I didn't set a break point on gdk_x_error(), should I?

I'm not sure if this is an X bug, something in xfce4-panel or even
xfwm4. So I post here before spam into bugzilla.

This happens on Debian Testing with GTK 2.8.20 and Xorg 7.1.0. xfwm4
and xfce4-panel are from SVN (last built two or three days ago).
