I see no reason for any such behavour other than:

- An env var being set in GNOME that controls the 3D rendering
  => do an "env" in each session and compare results

- A different color depth between Xfce and GNOME
  => do a xdpyinfo | grep "depth of root window"

- A buggy video driver
  => try different xfwm4 theme and see if that make any difference,
     who knows...

In any case, xfce doesn't control the 3D rendering which is being done
between the HW (accelerated 3D video card) and the appropriate
XFree86/X.org driver.

The fact that you're returned to the login screen makes me think a crash
occured in XFree86/X.org.
