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.

# EDIT: you should probably ignore this
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.
