hi Rich,
after your problems with upgrading Redhat linux and xfce i have the impression 
that your problem might have its reason in various untraceable changes on 
your system, been there, done that ;)

if i remember correctly, you moved xfce* binaries from /usr/bin to 
/usr/local/bin - my rebuilt xfce rpm would install configuration files to 
/etc/X11/xfce while my source-compiled xfce installed them to 
/usr/local/etc/xfce - the rpm uses /usr/share, the compiled version uses 
/usr/local/share - so i would in your case not know which config/shared files 
are now actually being used by your binaries.

out of curiosity, i wonder what happens if you run:
$ mv ~/.xfce ~/BackUp.xfce && xfce_upgrade

would the jpilot color problem still persist in the freshly created xfce
