Are you installed x11-themes/icons-tango (and x11-themes/icons-tango-extras) ?

If not, be careful, you must add SVG support in graphics/ImageMagick,
otherwise icons will be awful (black borders instead of transparent).

You can also install misc/gnome-icon-theme.

How do you run your Xfce session ? Could you post (somewhere) you
~/.xsession-errors (if it exists).
