Executed `startx /usr/bin/startxfce4` and it was as successful as
executing `startxfce4` on it's own.
Yesterday I forgot to mention, that I do have some problems with some
of my shortcuts since yesterdays update. E.g. I can't tune the volume
with a shortcut or I can't get the window list with
`xdesktop -windowlist`. However, if I start the last command from an
command line, after this the shortcut will work. Sadly this "trick" does
not work with the volume but I can still tune it via command line. :)
OK, till now I know that if I start xfce as usual through xdm, I will
only get a blank screen with the root window of xdm and some mouse
pointer. But the shortcuts (OK, most of them) do work. E.g. I can
startxfce4-terminal with one of my shortcuts. But there is no panel and
all the other fancy stuff. If I then execute `startxfce4` in the opened
terminal this will do the trick. Everything will be there as nothing
ever happened before. Panel, shortcuts - even the non working shortcuts
which are non working when started `startxfce4` from console do work.
