Since the xorg update my xfce4 desktop has become unusable. I always
get the error message below. I even setup FreeBSD 8.0-RELEASE from
scratch, updated to 8.0-STABLE, installed xorg and xfce4 with default

$ portinstall --batch /usr/ports/x11/xorg /usr/ports/x11-wm/xfce4

Then I moved my homedir away to avoid any cruft in .config or
wherever. Setup .ininitrc .session

$ cat .xinitrc
if [ -f ~/.xsession ]; then
        . ~/.xsession

$ cat .xsession
xset b off
exec sh /usr/local/etc/xdg/xfce4/xinitrc

So now everything should be completely vanilla:
