[Pkg-xfce-devel] Bug#449134: xfce4-panel: X randomly crashes when switching windows through task list

Package: xfce4-panel
Version: 4.4.1-2
Severity: normal

After the last upgrade sometimes X completely freezes when I switch
windows through the Task List in the Xfce panel.

It happens randomly after a while and with any window. The whole
screen becomes unuseable but the mouse pointer and the keyboard. After
some seconds the keyboard stops responding too.

When it crashes and I switch to tty1, there's no high CPU nor
memory usage. Also all the loaded processes are still running. If I
get back to the X screen, it's all blank. I just need to restart X
with <ctrl> <alt> <backspace> and everything is fine again. There's
nothing in syslog or Xorg log regarding this.

I'm not sure what's causing it, but it only gets crashed by the Task
List. These are the last upgrades related to it:

[UPGRADE] libgtk2.0-0 2.10.13-1 -> 2.12.1-1
