Right, sorry, I won't. I mis-interpreted your wording asking for a 
summary on how to reproduce as asking for it in the other bug report.

It could be as simple as:

BASESTARTUP=`basename "$STARTUP" | cut -d\  -f1`
if [ "$BASESTARTUP" = xfce4-session -o \
         \( "$BASESTARTUP" = x-session-manager -a \
         "`readlink /etc/alternatives/x-session-manager`" = \
                 /usr/bin/xfce4-session \) ]; then

However, this may be as undesirable as pointing x-session-manager at 
/usr/bin/startxfce4. Obviously, you and others can make the best 
decision in this regard.
