I did some more testing to track the contents of:
and found that the contents.xml.xxxx files are fine up to the point of
clicking "Close" on the "XFce Panel" settings dialog.
i.e. after completing step 4, but not closing the "Settings" Dialog, the
'contents.xml.active' file results in 0 byte size.
Hope this helps.
