[XFCE] Panel preferences starts on login, spawns annoying windows.

Almost immediately after login, even before the xfce panels or background show up, I receive a series of popup windows (about six or seven) to the effect of "The panel cannot be edited while running in kiosk mode."  It most certainly shouldn't be running in kiosk mode and is fine with letting me edit the panel later on; whether or not I close this series of windows, the xfce panel preferences window always shows up as soon as the panel has appeared.

Following are my .xinitrc

#!/bin/sh
#
# ~/.xinitrc
#
# Executed by startx (run your window manager from here)

if [ -d /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc.d ]; then
  for f in /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc.d/*; do
    [ -x "$f" ] && . "$f"
  done
  unset f
fi

xcompmgr &
exec startxfce4
xset +fp /usr/share/fonts/local
xset fp rehash&
wicd-client --tray

...and a screenshot of the Application Autostart
application autostart

Is there something I'm missing?  Please let me know if there's some information I've neglected to provide.  Thanks in advance!

Did you try a google search on the exact error message?

Re: [XFCE] Panel preferences starts on login, spawns annoying windows.

Yes, the one relevant bit of information I found was just instructions on setting up the panels to run in kiosk mode.  The only other places the message shows up are in files that contain the messages (or translations thereof) that the panel can give.

Re: [XFCE] Panel preferences starts on login, spawns annoying windows.

A screenshot of your autostart settings is not very informative because it will never show command line arguments. You can see the arguments by editing each entry or reading the desktop files in ~/.config/autostart.

If I had to guess, I'd say the "xfce4-panel" entry in your autostart is being given the "-p" flag. This would be one way of calling the panel prefs dialog before the panel itself. If you try to do this too early, it will indeed complain that the panel is locked.

I'm amazed no one else is having this problem...

Re: [XFCE] Panel preferences starts on login, spawns annoying windows.

Have you tried clearing your ~/.cache/sessions/?  You can always rename/move it so you can restore it later if that doesn't fix things.
