i also was using your patchset actively :) thanks for the port so far.
I noticed some things on the way:
The mixer application unfortunatly uses gstreamer now, and i think it is
rubbish :P. Could the old mixer be preserved somehow? It was clean and very
simple. I also remember to remember that the new one doesnt work that well.

This is probably an issue of xfce itself, but maybe worth mentioning; The
drag&drop between xfdesktop and thunar is kinda quirky. I noticed that files
get copied instead of renamed when I drag them elsewhere in the same filesystem
(again between xfdesktop and thunar). Also highlighting multiple files and then
using drag&drop only caused the single actually dragged file to be moved (...
# end igrone
BTW: Is the HAL automounting working in xfce? i never really tried to make it
work. Is it set up analog to gnome (its horror there)?
Thanks for your work, I really appreciate it.
