Package: xfce4-session
Severity: normal

After upgrading to xfce 4.3.9 the "logout button" (in the "Action
Buttons") and the "Quit" menu entry in the main menu have stopped
functioning.  If I select "Quit" from the menu, nothing seems to
happen.  The only suspicious thing I see is that I get the following
messages in my ~/.xsession-errors (I start xfce4-session from my
~/.xsession file, see below):

** (xfce4-session:11476): WARNING **: ICE connection 0x81dc988 rejected
xfce4-session-logout: No session manager running.

If I try to run xfce4-session-logout by hand, I get the same message.
xfce4-session seems to be running ok:

[hein] ~ :-) ps auxww | grep xfce4-ses
hein     11476  0.1  0.7  13340  8260 ?        S    Jul05   0:00 xfce4-session

If I try to logout with the "quit" button in the panel, I get a dialog
with the following question: Exit Xfce Panel?  (Cancel / Quit).  If I
click "Quit", the panel exits and the desktop + menu remain.  The
dialog can be seen here (this guy seems to have the exact same
problem):  http://forum.xfce.org/index.php?topic=2573.msg11038

My ~/.xsession follows below.  I run xdm 1.0.1-6.  Everything used to work
fine with the same ~/.xsession and xfce 4.2.

--- start of ~/.xsession

xset r rate 400 40
setxkbmap -rules xfree86 -model pc104 -layout us -option "altwin:meta_alt" -option "compose:ralt"

exec xfce4-session
