[Pkg-xfce-devel] Bug#526009: xfce4-utils: sessions started with startxfce4 lose hal/dbus functionality

Sorry, I thought I had deleted my .xsession file in some of my earlier 
testing, but apparently I had not. Starting xfce4 with:

   startx /usr/bin/startxfce4

actually does not work. However, putting this into $HOME/.xsession:

   exec /usr/bin/startxfce4

and then starting xfce4 with just:


does work.

My apologies for my earlier incorrect statements. I still feel that this 
should be documented somewhere.
