Man, I must like you.... here I go to the web to find the list archives
and figure out what your problem is.

Chuck?!! What happened to moongroup.com? Wow.

Starting xfce from a session manager is the wrong thing to do if you
don't want to run the XFce desktop; start the other one, then launch any
XFce components you want.

Okay -- anything you do from an xterm can be run elsewhere too; .xinitrc
would be a good place, or as a symlink in ~/Desktop/Autostart if your wm
supports that quasi-standard.

xfbdmgr is designed to work with xfbd as part of the whole desktop;
whatever wm you're looking at will have its own background manager. Use
it instead of XFce's.
