My guess is that you run it *after* the first DISPLAY=:1 xfce4-terminal?

If you want to separate the process, run:

xfce4-terminal --disable-server

or else all the window will share a common processus. When this
processus is terminated (maybe because you close the xephyr window),
then all the windows are terminated too.
