Speaking of issues with the panel, I would also like to point out an 
issue when the panel is greater than 50px tall, the "Window Buttons" 
item contains two rows, despite the panel's "Number of rows" set to "1". 

At 49px tall, the "Window Buttons" item displays normally. 

This is very annoying for anyone with a high-resolution screen that 
doesn't want to have a small panel. I have a 1080p screen and I like 
having a 40px panel, but if I were to purchase a 1440p or 4k screen 
then my ideal panel height would be above 50px.

 For a more visual explanation, this is how I use XFCE for years now:

I think we should have only one notification "thing" and everything
above the Workspace Switcher in this picture goes inside of it, no?
Well, I'm just a user and this is how I interact with XFCE (=
Also, if someone knows a way to improve this with Xubuntu 18.04
through modifying something with Xfconf or tweaking the theme I would
be thankfully, because I'm sticking with it until 20.04.

King regards,
