I often hit this issue. To avoid crashing the Xfce theme (and getting the ugly buttons, etc.), I always first disable the external monitor output in Settings > Display and only then I physically unplug the cable.

I had to delete ~/.config/dconf/user while logged out (in other words, from a virtual terminal) to get my settings back to working order.
