xfce-4.6 is running here on a couple of machines, with none of those
problems. Those actually sound more like xorg problems.

Which one? In what way? I miss the menu editor...

Had to manually set the icons in the panel for xterm, mousepad, thunar,
and firefox. I think I switched back to Rodent after not liking the
Tango icons, but only GNOME and Tango show in Settings/Appearance/Icons.

portdowngrade and some work can probably do it. If your problems are
really xorg related, changing window manager won't help.
