I tried to move the panel to the 2nd screen via the config dialog where
I can choose Monitor 1 or 2. As soon as I clicked "2", the panel
crashed. I use both screens at the same time, without Xinerama (I have
to disable it because of the ATI driver, if I use Xinerama, GL
acceleration fails).

No Debian upgrade recently.
