Well, it's certainly possible, since I do it all the time. My 
~/.vnc/startx is a symlink to ~/.xinitrc. I run two X instances on my 
local machine, so when running remotely I get :2. I use an ssh tunnel so 
when I'm at the remote machine (WinXP) I connect  to 'localhost:0'. I'd 
look outside of Xfce for the problem. Don't know if this helps much 
though :-)
