xfce with xmonad Window Buttons right-click menu

Hello, I'm using Debian 7.6 'Wheezy' with xfce, and I have xmonad installed too. On my top panel, I have the 'Window Buttons' item added (the bar with all the open programs), and I want to remove all entries when right-clicking a program made redunant by xmonad, so that is all entries other than 'Move to Workspace Right', 'Move to Another Workspace ->' and 'Close'. Does anybody know how to do this?

You could try editing Xfce's panel default.xml after putting a copy in your ~/.config/xfce4 directory. (Or the Xfce4 directory not be in .config, but have its own directory in ~/home. I cannot say for certain where the original file is on Debian, but on Slackware it is in /etc/xdg/xfce4.

Having Xfce and Xmonad both installed is irrelevant, since only one will used during an X-session, unless you are trying to use them simultaneously?

And bumping a thread is not a good idea. Especially in a case like this. It is bad etiquette at the best of times, but after only a day-and-a-half.
