OK, I've found part of the answer, but I don't know how to debug or to
correct it.  Xfwm does not appear to be honoring the xfwmrc parameters
anywhere.  I've tried putting the parameters in ~/.xfce/xfwmrc and in
/etc/X11/xfce/xfwmrc.  All parameters are being ignored.  It appears
that I am running totally from builtin defaults.

For example, I changed these parameters to get a visual reference.

# Default icons for most common apps
Style "*term*"      icon "/usr/share/xfce/icons/MagnifyGlas.xpm"
Style "*TERM*"      icon "/usr/share/xfce/icons/MagnifyGlas.xpm"
Style "*Term*"      icon "/usr/share/xfce/icons/MagnifyGlas.xpm"

When I minimize an aterm window, the requested override is not
honored; the icon chosen is the standard terminal with a check mark.

How can I resolve this problem?
