the same thing, really (unless that's wrong too in some sense or other).

Not everyone would agree with that. Sometimes successive cross-sections (e.g. national polls of different samples taken at different points in time but with the same questions) are referred to as longitudinal data. A retrospective history, in which people are asked detailed questions about the past, can be considered another type of longitudinal data. I would say that a panel study is a specific type of longitudinal study, but it isn't the only one.
