Teamviewer 13.2.13582 crashes indicator plugin (Xubuntu 18.04)

Hello! I'm having this problem, on Xubuntu 18.04.

As soon as teamviewer's main window is open, the status indicator plugin crashes. Reopening the plugin will just crash it again, until teamviewer has been closed.

I have the same problem (still happening with Teamviewer 14).

The only solution I found is replacing the "Status Notifier" plugin with "Notify area" plugin, but the results is not the same, some indicator can be missing, and is less integrated with desktop theme.

Maybe this should be reported to XFCE development team?

Yes, I have done the same.

I thought this was a problem with Teamviewer, because it's the only Application with this problem. But I am not sure.. where would we need to report this problem for the XFCE-Devs to see it?

This happens with Teamviewer 14 as well, and also happens on other environments like Mate:

https://github.com/mate-desktop/mate-panel/issues/692

I'm on Xfce as well where the indicator widget is called "Status Notifier Plugin". Is there any workaround to block indicators for Teamviewer?

I expect that no application should be able to crash the panel item, but as many other implementations are crashing equally, I guess Teamviewer is doing something really wrong with the notifications.
