My taskbar is missing! Last seen at the bottom of my monitor, it ceased to return after rebooting my PC.

Please be gentle, I am a recent VLconvert, displaying post microsoft trauma syndrome:( Huh

Please tell us what version of VL you are using. If you are using SOHO, run "kicker" from a terminal.

Blury beat me, the problem surely was you non volunteering saved your session, since xfce do that by default. So the problem sticks on future login and even in reboots. 
Be sure to check the "save session" box when logout, so it will be there in the next login. Once the panel is back, I recommend to disable the "save session" thing. It causes more problems than solutions. You can do that from 'Settings' > 'Sessions and startup settings'. Uncheck the logout settings boxes.

Yes, I've also had it in both Zenwalk and Vector (I've switched to Fluxbox for the time being).
