The last issue with the new xfce 4.8 is Thunar.  From the command line:

   % thunar

   (thunar:71482): GVFS-RemoteVolumeMonitor-WARNING **: invoking IsSupported() failed for remote volume monitor with dbus name org.gtk.Private.GPhoto2VolumeMonitor: org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.Spawn.ChildExited: Process
   /usr/local/libexec/gvfs-gphoto2-volume-monitor exited with status 1

After about twenty seconds, the Thunar window opens.  Another twenty 
seconds later, another one opens (this may be due to hal misidentifying 
hard drives as removable).

gvfs is built with only the AVAHI option enabled, and gphoto is not 

Building Thunar with default config options or all PLUG_* options 
disabled doesn't affect it, nor does the presence or absence of the 
thunar-vfs port.

Once open, Thunar seems to work fine.
