Yes if I run exit, it closes just fine but if I press the 'x' after not 
typing anything it just dies.

I've not tried it. I was just trying xfce4 for awhile, and then found 
out that the updates to things that I'd like to see in XFCE won't be 
available until xfce 4.10 so I'm going to wait for it before I leave 
GNOME(I've moved to a screened update for all gnome related items so 
that I don't have to experience GNOME3). I can try reinstalling it 
tomorrow, and reproducing the bug once I login to an xfce session. If it 
is repeated, I'll reply to the bug report here.
