Unfortunately, it didn't work for me.  I made a new user and logged in
and kicked up OOo.  It worked just fine.  I think my problem isn't
directly, XFCE related.  I've managed to edit something that is causing
OOo to ignore XFCE.  Unfortunately, I don't know what that thing is.

I've decided to join the Fedora list and see if anyone there has any
idea what I've managed to do.
