Package: xfce4-panel
Version: 4.10.1-1
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

On upgrading from wheezy to jessie, it appears that the positioning 
behaviour of the Clock, Notification Area, and Workspace Switcher 
elements in the XFCE panel has changed from right-aligned to left-aligned.

As a result, instead of the Clock being in a predictable fixed position 
at the extreme bottom right of my screen where I am accustomed to 
finding it, it now moves back and forth across the bottom of the screen 
as I open and close application windows (which changes the width of the 
Window Buttons element).

There is no visible means within the XFCE panel configuration utility of 
reinstating the previous behaviour.
