My guess is that the xressources aren't loaded correctly before xfwm4 is
started. As Xressources are only used for program started *after* they
are loaded, the fact that restarting xfwm4 fixes the issue means they
are loaded too late.

Can you check in gdm3 that the session you are using is “Xfce Session”
and not default X session or something like that (no idea how it's
called in gdm3).
