Hmm.  From the best I can tell the problem involves linking glib1.x and
glib2 together combined with some thread strangeness.  We can't avoid
this because we need xmms (gtk1.2) and xfce4 (gtk2).  It appears this
problem -only- exists in 4.x (I run 5.x on all my machines except for a
server so I can't really reproduce the problem here).  I'm not sure on
how to fix it yet even though I think I might have an idea.

What does
    ldd /usr/X11R6/lib/xfce4/panel-plugins/libxfcexmms.so
give you?
