If you upgrade xfce4.6 to xfce4.8 you need to take care if you have installed also these packages:
...as these are only recommended and without that thunar is not able mount external disks and desktop is not able to turn PC off. 

I am starting session with "startx".
The last thing which I do not fully understand - in /etc/pam.d/common-session
must be
session optional        pam_loginuid.so
session optional        pam_ck_connector.so nox11
Update of libpam-runtime removed (upon system wide settings) pam_loginuid.so from this config file.
