Does this happen everytime. I mean, does this happen if you completely
quit the session and retry? Does this happen with another user? Does
this happen after a manual reboot? The powerdev group is not needed
anymore if you use policykit + consolekit, iirc (and anyway there's no
more dbus stuff for handling the powerdev group).

That could be because you indeed don't have permissions to contact the
hal daemon.

Debian Testing doesn't really have a consistent situation wrt. Xfce so
it might be related too. Which Xfce packages versions do you have?
