I am having problems in Xfce4 after a reboot. Say for example I have 4 windows listed in the taskbar:

1. Buddy List
2 IM window
3 Web Browser
4 Xterm

Say for example the title of the web browser is Gentoo Forums :: Post a new topic - Mozilla Firefox

the title will keep going past the space allowed and sometimes overlaps other items. The screenshot will make much more sense. I am running Gentoo 2005.1 on an AMD64. Everything is up to date with portage and I can supply any other information needed. I did try restarting again with no success... I also tried re-emerging xfce4-panel and xfce4-sessions and a restart with no success also.

I had the same problem - From memory it was a bug caused by incompatibility with newer versions of gtk+ in xfce4.

It was fixed for me in the recent 4.2.3 release however.

Looks like it's libxfcegui4 you need to update - see http://www.xfce.org/release_notes/4.2.3.1_changelog.html

From the libxfcegui4 section - "Ellipsize text in taskbar buttons with gtk+ 2.6 and later (required for gtk+ 2.8, fixes bug #1099, #1124, #1131, #1210).".
