Are they separators? If you right click them what does the pop-up say? The name (description) is usually at the top.

Don't worry about your English, it's good.

If you right click the rectangles, what happens? Do you get a pop-up menu?

Re: strange rectangle in xfce-taskbar-plugin

Those rectangles are called handles and there are there to access the taskbar when it's filled with buttons. It should be there and there's nothing wrong with you installation.

Re: strange rectangle in xfce-taskbar-plugin

Why do they show up on some themes and not others?

I guess that's a theme question not an XFCE question. :-)

Re: strange rectangle in xfce-taskbar-plugin

That's a distro question i think, since most themes won't hide frame-borders.

Send it to myself and Jasper ;D? There are usability reasons for those handles (move/remove/etc taskbar when it's filled for example) and that's the reason why they're there.

Re: strange rectangle in xfce-taskbar-plugin

replace the rectangles with separators and add a option to show it or not smile to the options of  xfce-taskbar-plugin.

PD: add more space between the xfce-taskbar-plugin to another plugin like 1px or more

Re: strange rectangle in xfce-taskbar-plugin

New patch: Added an option to hide the handles, and no they won't be replaced by a separator.
Patch will (most likely) be committed when 4.4 has been released.
