So you're actually not using xfce4-power-manager here, and the settings
is irrelevant. I know, this is a bit confusing, it's supposedly going to
be better in 4.12, but eh.

If you're using the logout dialog, you're actually using xfce4-session,
which also has a (different from xfpm) setting for locking the screen
before suspend/sleep. You can check that in the session settings, last
(Advanced) tab. Can you report back?

Also, if you want your power manager icon back, you should add the power
manager plugin to your panel. In case it's not installed (it should be
by default since it's a Recommends), you can install it with
xfce4-power-manager-plugins. This advice is in a NEWS.Debian entry, but
it might be a good idea to have it also in the release notes for people
not doing an upgrade but a reinstall.

I have no idea, there's not much information in that bug actually.

Can you try the above and report back?
