OOo uses an incredibly ugly hack to check for gnome. Now, luckily some 
people came up with an even uglier hack to trick OOo into thinking gnome 
is running.

in your ~/.xfce4/xinitrc (or .xinitrc if you use startx instead of 
startxfce4) put this line:

xprop -root -format GNOME_SM_PROXY 8i -set GNOME_SM_PROXY 1

It works for me ;)
