That file previously had these contents:

exec /usr/local/bin/startxfce4 --with-ck-launch

Changing this to just:


and restarting the xrdp service did not result in xfce4 starting by

It's possible FreeBSD-specific changes are needed to xrdp.ini,
startwm.sh, and maybe other config files, but I don't know what those
changes are.
