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).
