Sorry it took so long for me to test this, but I'm still learning about 
patches. In any event, once I figured it out it worked without a hitch, 
although just about all the plugin modules also have to be rebuilt 
(those which aren't in the x11-wm/xfce install or in ports). 
Fortunately, this is as simple as downloading the 
tarballs, ./configure, etc., and it has nothing to do with your patch. 

Thanks very much for the work, Oliver, as personally I've been 
anticipating the new xfce release for a while ;)
