I think it may be related to the following dependency chain:

libexo-0.3-0 Depends: libnotify1
libnotify1 Recommends: notification-daemon
notification-daemon Depends: gconf2

So I guess adding a Recommends: notification-daemon-xfce on libexo-0
would fix the problem, but I don't really like the solution.
