With gdm it should work fine. Could you try ck-list-sessions and report
what it give?

Without gdm, it seems that you need libpam-ck-connector. Could you
install it, log out and log back in, then start xfce (using startxfce4
or startx /usr/bin/startxfce4). And retry ck-list-sessions as well as
the shutdown stuff.

I hope it'll fix your problem. If it does, we'll add a recommends on
xfce4-session for this one.
