Maybee that I misunderstood something but I'm running "xfce4-iconbox &"
from my /etc/xfce4/xinitrc right after 


(and before "kxkb &" - currently I'm having KDE on my box, but it'd be
great if someone create a keyboard switcher taskbar-plugin for xfce...)
and it works well...

(sorry about my english and about this disclaimer thing)
