To echo Christoph's feedback, LibreOffice and Firefox
were Freezing the LXPanel for me. Firefox: anytime I opened several
tabs and closed one of them. LO, same pattern. We already had a talk
about it, some time ago, after Marty had left and the LXPanel had no
maintainer. I copy our last message about the issue.
Thanks again for looking into it.

Yeah, it seems like it is important that at least two instances of the
same application are opened, and it triggers when closing. When you say
libreoffice, are you referring to the writer, or calc, or a different
one? For the bug to trigger, I think it must be two of the same kind.

Usually on lists you should reply directly and cc the list and everyone
else involved in the discussion. That way someone who is not subscribed
can also participate in a thread of discussion. I will not get your
emails twice, because the mailing list server usually detects that you
have emailed me personally, too, and doesn't send another copy to me.
That being said, I am actually not sure how this list handles that. I
should check. But I am pretty sure it does it that way.

Thanks, that would be great!
