OK, did that.

The panel is there (and displayed icons on the desktop,
weird). However, the menu doesn't work for that user either.

I'm running 6.

I'll try installing that from the port and removing again.

How did you install?

I've tried portupgrade -R after deleting the specified packages), then
deleting XFCE4 manually when that didn't work to install and left X

and then used make clean install

then after manually deleting everything this morning I used
portinstall -R

making from the port directory and using portinstall seem to have
gotten me to the same place...
