I haven't investigated it.  You're probably right.

XFCE4 needs to run a series of apps, in sequence.  The way it
_currently_ does this is to modify the user's .xsession file through
script designed for that purpose.  

The way it *should* do it is with, say, a "start-xfce4" script, which
contains the contents currently created by "xfce_setup", and which could
be invoked either by a DM or as the last line of an .xsession file.

Should I file a bug?
