After a contact with a XFCE developer, it turned out that you were
right: the systray was already in the taskbar, while I was trying to
add it to the panel. However, as you said, I found the error message
quite misleading, since it doesn't allow to understand why it doesn't
want to add the systray to the panel.

So, I think this bug per-se can be closed, however it would be nice if
upstream could change the error message to something more meaningful.
