In the way like on http://www.uvena.de/tmp/xfce_big_panel.png?
I think panel plugins should take care of the used font size according
to the panel size. This affects also the sensors plugin.
I just noticed it even happens when I use a horizontal panel
(http://www.uvena.de/tmp/xfce_hori_panel.png). Setting the width of the
orage clock in the properties dialog doesn't work at all, btw.
