No, you should end up with two sessions from consolekit's point of view.

This causes other problems.

Is startxfce4 called by other things (e.g. GDM), or is it a script that
the user is expected to use to launch their session similar to startx?
If it's the latter then it should probably be modified to explicitly
create a consolekit session for the user session it is creating. That
would fix this issue without leading to multiple sessions for each
