Subject: xfce4-panel: panel resizes to size of unplugged monitor, stretching off screen
Package: xfce4-panel
Version: 4.10.1-1
Severity: normal

My main screen on the laptop is 1024x768.  I plug in a VGA monitor
which is 1360x768.  I had to use ARandR to activate it BTW, it could
not be activated from Display settings app.  

I configured the VGA monitor to appear to the right of the main screen.

The panels are still on the laptop monitor.  Compositor is on with alpha.
There is a top panel with menu, window buttons, clock, etc.  It is 1024
wide and stretches the length of the laptop screen only.

When I unplug the external monitor, the top panel resizes to 1360 wide
and stretches off the edge of the laptop screen.

This happens whether or not autohide is turned on.

When I plug the external monitor back in, the top panel resizes to
1024 wide and fits correctly in the laptop screen.
