I can confirm #2 for XFCE, but that is because with the update to XFCE 
the taskbar spacers no longer automatically expand. You now have to 
add/set the separator to expand to fill the space to make sure the clock 
is on the far right. I am pretty sure that this is just an oversight in 
the XFCE default settings (which are still set for the old version of 
the separators), and it will probably be corrected in the upcoming versions.
