I was so caught up in understanding the 'why' and 'how' that I neglected
to see a simple fix. Thanks for reminding me of this.

I put 'xfce4-session' back into my $PATH, logged out to GDM and back
into XFce4. Then I killed 'xftaskbar' and saved the session upon exiting
XFce4 once more. No more problem! Still is weird that it defaulted to
loading everything and refused to read 'xinitrc', but hey...I'm OK now.

Thanks again, Benedikt.
