As root? No good idea. You should run from a !root user account.

No, it works when you startx from after a "normal" login, too.
I do know that, it's my setting at the moment. :-)
So if you would create a normal user account and add these files:
Give them +x permissions. The first file allows you to inherit your
settings from the C shell (~/.cshrc) into your X session when started
from XDM or another display manager.
After login, you can use the
command to run your XFCE session.
But in fact, running as root can't be the reason why console
switching doesn't seem to work correctly, I believe...
