[Pkg-xfce-devel] Bug#680385: xfce4-panel: window buttons sometimes shows windows from wrong monitor

Package: xfce4-panel
Version: 4.8.6-3
Severity: normal

I have a dual monitor setup, with a panel at the bottom of each
monitor.  Each panel has a "window buttons" plugin, which is set to
show only the windows on that monitor (none of the "Filtering" options
are checked).  I start xfce using "startx" from the command line.

Sometimes when I first log in, the right-hand window-buttons plugin
shows the windows from the *left* monitor.  If I bring up the
preferences dialog, and first check "show windows from all monitors",
and then uncheck it, it then behaves correctly.

I'm not certain that it happens every time after a reboot, but it's
definitely happened two or three times.  It may also be that those
were times when xfce didn't get to shut down cleanly (because I had to
power-cycle or whatever).
