That looks like the log from a working session. It loads the Xfce
session (which in turns starts startxfce4). Looking at the timestamp,
the session was working fine, wasn't it?

The defaut session is what appears in the selection box, and it's called
“Default Xsession” (this can be changed in /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf
with the setting user-session, it refers to a desktop file
in /usr/share/xsessions).
