You should probably disable the splash screen then. Or if you don't need 
session management, disable the session manager completely.

Hm, we need a FAQ entry here: There was already an attempt to merge ROX 
with Xfce, but Thomas wants to create his own Desktop.

If you want to use ROX, you can do, no problem. Nobody forces you to use 
xffm or xfdesktop. Xfce is modular and will stay modular.
