I can confirm this on Gentoo in 4.10 and 4.11, but only if "Don't reserve space on borders" isn't selected in the panel prefs, so there's the interaction. eg, it'd be ideal if yes, a maximized window reserved space with that selected, but the panel didn't overdraw a full-screen app.

See bug 8563; attachment 4960  fixes this issue. It has already been applied in Ubuntu (https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/xfwm4/+bug/1066535), but nobody seems to care upstream.

Yup, this is in fact the same issue as bug 8563. Marking as duplicate.
