xfce4 panel plugins not showing up

Hi all,
I'm running xfce4 (4.10.0), and after a recent system update, my plugins no longer show up. The xfce4 panel plugins are installed, but they don't show up in the "Add New Items" dialog box.  For example xfce4-timer-plugin is clearly not listed in the box, but is installed on my system.

The "Add New Items" box missing a few...

xfce4-timer-plugin is installed...

Re: xfce4 panel plugins not showing up

Don't you have mixed versions of the plugins?
I'm asking because here in Fedora with datetime plugin 0.6.1-11.fc17 libdatetime.so is in /usr/lib/xfce4/panel/plugins/
