I've attached my X config. I'm currently running with the binary driver, though
the problem persists regardless of whether I use "nv" or "nvidia."

Not that I'm aware of. This was a clean install when I ran into the problem
Note that I installed the Debian base and then installed everything else by hand
with apt-get/aptitude. This has worked flawlessly on a number of machines I've
set up in the past, which is why I'm so confused.

It does happen if I still use startx. I noticed that if I merely kill
xfce-mcs-manager and xfwm4 and start them over again (without touching any
settings stuff), it just starts working properly.
And as a new development, when I start X, xfwm4 either isn't started or dies
immediately. I have no idea whether or not this is related to the original
problem or something different. Nonetheless, as I noted above, once I start it
manually (from a terminal), it works as expected.
Actually, now that I think about it, I believe the xfwm4 not starting properly
happened about when I added the composite stanza to my xorg.conf (this in
relation to debian bug 445323).
