I don't think the panel bug (?) is related.

It's rather strange if all this is happening in a stock, proper installation (and not an upgrade from a previous Slack). I cannot reproduce this on my VM. Your user is a member of the right groups. Also KDM, in theory, should take care of stuff regarding user's privileges to mount/shutdown/etc.

Although a long shot, you could try a couple of things:

Switch to init 3, then (as normal user) run xwmconfig and startx.

Create a dummy user and see if it's the same deal:
Code:
useradd -m -g users -G audio,cdrom,floppy,lp,plugdev,power,video -s /bin/bash dummy
passwd dummy

AlleyTrolley, the commands you suggested will only stop and restart the XFCE environment wont they?? So it will be only a temporary workaround?
Yes just a temporary workaround, but they will shut down the system to halt/power off and/or do a warm reboot of the system. They will not suspend the system, but I would check the website there may be a short onliner for suspend also.

I cannot provide more information unless I dig more, but somehow this problem disappeared. I am not sure if its due to your suggestions, because I cannot recall that it worked immediately.
I will keep an eye and post back here is this starts again.
