I posted this over at xfce...
I am getting tis error message when I try to add most of my pluging to the new 4.10:
Plugin "Weather Update" unexpectedly left the panel, do you want to restart it?
The plugin restarted more than once in the last 60 seconds. If you press Execute the panel will try to restart the plugin otherwise it will be permanently removed from the panel.
I tried googling this error but only a handful of sites come up with only 1 about xfce. Leads me to believe it's something I did.
Is there any way to fix this?
I ave the xfce goodies installed.
Other than this it works great and has nice new features. MIME type GUI among others.
Just curious - how did you get xfce 4.10 - compiled from source or got it from experimental?
If from experimental do you have all the necessary parts? Maybe you are missing something important for the plugins to work correctly...

i don't want to sound like a wise guy, but that is exactly what you get when you use bleeding-edge software...
which i don't, for obvious reasons.
certainly it is nice to have the latest features, but it can be very annoying when even trivial things refuse to work.

The weather plugin is an external one, like Orage (Show Time and Date) - the latter even crashes 4.8's panel if added the first time. Don't worry, just wait - and probably try different plugin combinations, preferably without external plugins.
You may install xfce 4.10 from experimental repository with (assuming you have the experimental repository on your sources.list):
$ sudo apt-get -t experimental install xfce4
I got the same issues, most plugins such as xfce4-weather-plugin aren't updated (compiled with the xfce 4.10 libraries) so they won't work and we either compile them ourselves or wait for the project maintainer to do so.

The base of 4.10 is solid and as machinebacon and jotapesse said, it is a matter of time before the plugins are brought up to code.
@jens, you speak good wisdom, but someone has to live on that edge to help resolve issues just like this one
