Although for the installed version it will probably help to see if it happens a guest session or a new user account because lxpanel will use config files in your home directory and start them up according to that while a fresh install or new user will use the default permissions. This can lead to people with installed systems missing things that happen for people on fresh install. I think this reason played a part in why 14.04 orginally got released without nm-applet starting as people running it daily still had their old configuration files and did not notice the problem. I also think it would hard for upstream to do any tests of this sort as they don't really know downstream configs will be when making the the upstream code. These bugs in configuration files while not requiring much programming knowledge to fix can be quite sneaky.
