1. Can anybody tell me the slowest available shutter speed in aperture priority mode on the Xpan? Mine doesn't seem to go beyond 3 seconds, thought it's possible to set 8 seconds manually.
2. Does anybody have a source for an on-line manual? I've tried Manuals2go and Craig Camera, but no luck.

The EV range for the meter is EV4(f/4) to EV19(f/22) at ISO 100, not very low I'm afraid. I often have to meter with my Nikon bodies when the XPan meter hits the wall.
EV 4 at f/4 is only 1 second, so getting 3 seconds in auto mode could well be beyond the official metering range.
I should have a scanned English manual, I'll contact you and let you know if I can find it on the computer or archive disks.
