I tried to run the following in LXDE while lxpanel was having a fit:

> lxpanel --profile LXDE
GLib (gthread-posix.c): Unexpected error from C library during
'pthread_mutex_unlock': Operation not permitted.  Aborting.
zsh: abort      lxpanel --profile LXDE

As always, let me know if there's any additional information I can provide.
