Package: xfce4-panel
Version: 4.4.2-6
Severity: normal

Following update of machine and reboot the XFCE4-panel shows up as a normal 
window with buttons for maximize, close, minimize, etc. This behavior is 
very annoying as the panel content then shifts behind open programs which 
are maximized. 

Suggested problem source is a libglib update. I confirmed that I updated 
libglib before the last shutdown.

 Updated from libglib2.0-0 2.22.4-1~bpo50+1 
 Updated to   libglib2.0-0_2.24.2-1~bpo50+1_amd64.deb

Attempts to update xfce4 to correct problem, fail because the most current 
version in the repository is already installed.
