Empty spaces in lxpanel when using xfce4-power-manager

I found this :

Maybe it's already fixed, I tried to build it from git :
git clone git.xfce.org/xfce/xfce4-power-manager

sudo apt-get install \
libxfce4ui-1-dev \
libxfce4util-dev \
libxfconf-0-dev \
libxrandr-dev \
libdbus-glib-1-dev \
libdbus-1-dev \
xfce4-dev-tools \

you need also build-essential git autoconf automake and maybe others I 
forgot :-D

./autogen.sh --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc --disable-panel-plugins 
make install

But now x-p-m is no longer running when I resume... so I don't know if 
it works.
I can't find any errors in the logs.
