Where exactly are you able to left click and have a “panel-settings”
stuff? The only thing related would be to right click on the panel and
then click on “Customize Panel”. Is that what you mean?

Could you be a little more specific about “everything else dies”?

What autostarts? The panel or the panel-settings? You can clean your
session from outside of Xfce by removing .cache/session (make a backup
if you want) to restart. 

That's the first time anyone reports of such a thing so needless to say
it doesn't seem reproducible here. Could you be a little more specific
about your config, how you install etc.

If you could try, before using that “panel-settings” stuff we don't know
about, to shut-down the xfce4-panel (using xfce4-panel -x from a
terminal) and re-run it from a terminal, and report if there's something
displayed when “the whole system freezes”.
