According to the home page of the upstream project, <http://www.xfce.org/>, the Xfce Session Manager:
"Controls the login and power management of the desktop and allows you to store multiple login sessions."
To fix, "someone" needs to build a debugging version of xfce4-session and run it with a debugger.

But I think it's safe to say that no-one* is running Xfce on Darwin/XQuartz, so this is Terra Incognita...
