I'm not sure this is a good idea. I'm investigating shutdown bugs for
another user, and we just managed to find that, if you don't use gdm,
then you _need_ libpam-ck-connector so you have the correct rights, and
can shutdown.

I don't really know what happens to you, but it seems that the “first”
Thunar is outside of consolekit, somethingg like that?

I think (but I'm not yet really sure) that, if you're not using gdm (and
kdm, maybe), then you need to have libpam-ck-connector installed, and
you should start xfce using startxfce4 or startxfce4, but anyway beware
of that consolekit stuff.

I don't really know what you are trying to do with your .xsession and
the ck-launch-session stuff.
