Problem solved, thanks to those who posted suggestions. It turns out the real
problem is that Debian have reconfigured vncserver to always do what is
in /etc/X11/Xsession even if ~/.vnc/xstartup exists. The real solution is to
$vncStartup = "~/.vnc/xstartup";
to ~/.vnvrc, then xfce4 starts and runs as it should.
