> Removing it isn't a good idea anyway, it's needed.

I removed it as per that 4.6 fix.  Have put it back both
in /home/user/.config/autostart and in /etc/xdg/autostart.

> Can you check that xfce4-settings-helper and xfsettingsd are running?

In fact, neither is running.  These are the xfce processes that are
running as per ps -e:


After seeing your comment I tried starting xfce4-settings-helper
manually.  Shortcuts started working.   I also switched it on in the
autostart settings as well, and the first time I logged out and back
in, shortcuts were working.  The second time however they stopped
working again.  In the autostart settings, I found that the settings
helper checkbox had been cleared again for no reason.  Setting it on
again led to the same cycle (works on first following login, not after
that).  Not sure what this means.

This is the contents of the file 

[Desktop Entry]

Only if xfce4-settings-helper is running.
