I would like to use the Xfce panel "clock" item.  Unfortunately, it
is broken:

- If I right-click on the Xfce panel and choose "Panel
Preferences...", the "Panel" dialog appears.

- Selecting Panel -> Items tab, "Clock" appears in the list of
panel items.

- If I select Panel -> Items -> Clock and click the "Edit the
currently selected item" button, the "Clock" dialog appears.

- I then configure Clock as follows:

Time Settings Timezone        PST8PDT Appearance Layout
Digital Tooltip format    Wednesday 09 August 2017 Clock Options
Format        05:04:55 PM

Once I have made the above settings, but before choosing "Close",
the current time is displayed at the proper location in the Xfce
panel. This is what I want.

- But when I click "Close", the current time disappears from the
panel -- e.g. Clock breaks.

Mine works, but settings look different.  I made no changes to clock

When I open Panel Preferences -> Items -> Clock -> Edit the currently selected item, the defaults are:

  Time Settings
    Timezone            <blank>
    Layout              Digital
    Tooltip format      Custom Format
  Clock Options
    Format              Custom Format

yet my field Timezone is blank.  Maybe try that?

Failure is the same.

There is an .xfce4-session.verbose-log , though I don't know what
you'll find.
