i'm running lxde on 9.1-RC1 amd64 with the intel driver. 

i do not see #1 below, but instead the screen simply goes black until the power turns off. 

i do not see #2 below at all - the clock is to the far right, and everything else appears to be in its proper place.

> Hi,
> I have some issues to report.

> 1:During shutdown, LXDE gives a garbled and white/ black stripped
> screen, instead of showing the progress of shutdown

> 2: the Taskbar tray of XFCE is not properly aligned, being that the
> clock is in the middle, next to the quick launch icons(to the left)
> and the quick launch for the browser in XFCE does not function
> properly, clicking on the globe, gives no result
> Usually The clock and the system icons are supposed to be in the far
> right normally?

> 3: the new disc tray does not always function, it fails to display or
> mount various optical media's
> it is usually hit and miss

> 4: not to nit pick, or fuss, but in 9.0 Stable- RELEASE desktop
> environments loaded rather instantly but not in any of the snapshots
> , beta or RC 1

> I am curious and want to know if anything is being done differently

> 5: In various RPM - based distro's and even in Linux Mint, there is a
