xfce4 and window sizing on NX server

Is anyone else out there using Xfce4 with NoMachine's NX server?

With release 1.5 of the NX server clients can resize the root window
during a session (at least with a linux client). There seems to be some
problem with the communication between the Xserver and Xfce4 regarding
the size of the root window. Xfce4 always comes up with a window manager
smaller than the root canvas. Example: anything larger than 1024x768
falls back to 1024x768. If asking for 1024x768 Xfce4 comes up as 640x480
and so on.

Now of course, this might be as much of a problem with the NX software
as with Xfce4. However, both Gnome and KDE work just fine, so I thought
I might at least ask if someone here understands what is going on.

I have tested this with version 4.2.2 and of Xfce.
The NX server runs version 1.5.0-70. The problem occurs with all
versions of the NX client and on at least Linux, Windows and OSX.

Greatful for any input,
