I confirmed the incorrect behavior: It seems that the Panelbar returns the container wrapper and not the data item. Currently, to get the data item you need to retrieve it from the DataContext of the item, for example:
|(panelBar.SelectedItem as Control).DataContext
This will be fixed in the next ServicePack release of the controls.
