This is the default binding for Ctrl-Alt-Delete anyway. It seems to work
fine for most people, at least.

Hmh, it doesn't really seem related. xfdesktop has nothing to do with
that, so I wonder why it should be link. Are you 100% confident that,
each time you press ctrl-alt-del (well, each “failed” time), the message
is displayed in .xsession-errors?

HMmh, strange. Maybe check you don't have a conflicting application
running or multiple shortcuts bound to ctrl-alt-del?
