Ok, here's my idea: record ck-list-session, polkit-auth output and the 
aptitude log on every Xfce start and shutdown/restart.

For start it's easy, I just use the autostart feature, but how could I 
do this for shutdown? Is there a specific command that is executed to 
trigger the shutdown/restart so I can create my own launcher?

If you can't explain it simply, you don't understand it well enough.
