I don't have a lot of hope for this suggestion, but perhaps when you're 
leaving XFCE you're saving the session, so when you go back it restarts 
nautilus. Make sure Nautilus is good and dead, rerun xfdesktop, exit xfce 
saving the session like that. 
Other than that, I'm not sure what to suggestm because simply killing 
Nautilus seemed to work the time I did that.
