Crashes on FreeBSD 5.3 using RC2

I have for a while now used the ports-patch to get RC1 of Xfce 4.2
running, but it has been very buggy. I just now downloaded the installer
from and changed my .xinitrc to point to
$HOME/local/bin/startxfce4 and everything seems to start up nicely.

However, just as in RC1 using the ports patch, using either the panel or
right-clicking the desktop makes the application in question crash.

Path to runlog:

Am I doing anything wrong here?

Same directory above also contains xfce4-panel.core and xfdesktop.core
from the crash.

$ ./local/bin/xfwm4 --version    
        This is xfwm4 version for Xfce
        built with GTK+-2.4.13, linked with GTK+-2.4.13.

Thanks for any help on this, since I love Xfce4 in general (4.0.6 was
great, but I'd love to hop on the Xfce4.2 bandwagon at once!).
