That line was already in xorg.conf (it was necessary to get a mouse to
work after the last xorg update in January). However, I did not have
it as the last line in the ServerLayout section. I moved it to the
last line, but that didn't make a difference.

There's still no XFCE menu, and without the ability to update the
settings in XFCE, it's pretty much unusable...
