(Testing needed) Empty spaces in lxpanel when using xfce4-power-manager

because i am not very familiar with git i have downloaed the 
source-package from 12.04 with apt-get source xfce4-power-manager

i applied the patch and rebuild the package with "dpkg-buildpackage 

You can find the result here


Because i dont have an amd64 system/cpu i can only provide the i386 
build but i guess that is ok so some of us can test the patch.

Feedback is welcome

Also posted that on the bug.

Kind regards
