Fine, so 90consolekit should run. That's exactly the point of
Xsessions.d stuff.

Both. It works fine to use it from GDM, to directly use startxfce4 from
console, to run startx /usr/bin/startxfce4, to put it in .xsession and
run startx.

I don't want to divert from upstream, and I don't think that's the role
of Xfce initscript to set-up CK. It shouldn't depend on it and that's
why I definitely want Xfce/Debian users to use the Xsessions.d scripts,
because they are installed by the packages themselves, so it'll
automagically work. (except in this case because of the stale CK session
problem, but I started discussing it on #526006 and #520720)
