Just for kicks I installed xfce4-session and ran it. It doesn't require
the rest of xfce4 to run.
Unfortunately, it worked for me without any error. It even started the
sessions I had saved from the time when I was using xfce4.
Have you tried deleteing .xfce4, Torfinn?
Another point which I should mention is that I did a completely clean
install of all my ports when I updated to Xorg 7.5. This guarantees that
there isn't any random junk left around.
