Just to be sure, are you using official debian packages from unstable ?
Similar problem has been reported when using non-official packages we
made available at xfce.corsac.net (i386), so maybe it's your case.

Why not using the xfce4 xinitrc ? It'll configure the environnement,
etc.. Maybe something is missing. I don't know how xdm handles startup
script, but try to make it use "startxfce".

If you need to tune it, you can copy /etc/xdg/xfce4/xinitrc to
~/.xinitrc and edit it by hand.

And if you need to run some programs when entering desktop, there is an
"Autostarted applications" available (menu, settings, autostarted
applications) for your convenience (and session management should
provide similar feature).

Can you try using startxfce4 and report success or failure ?
