I have never seen the task pane disappear. By design, it is blank when you are not in a content control. But it should never disappear, unless you close it.
Are there any steps you can give me to reproduce? What OS is your Windows PC running, and it is Word 2007, yes?
Are you able to try installing the add-in on a differently configured machine? (I've been developing on Win 7, and checking the install on XP)
Do you experience the problem on the sample-docs/databinding/invoice.docx (current svn copy)?
Please inspect the customxml part containing the conditions in your docx, and confirm it contains xpathref elements, not xpath elements. (In my testing, this didn't kill the task pane, but it is worth checking these are correct to eliminate this as an issue)
