no, no error messages. I log in into my account, see the running mouse 
(Balou splash screen), while the messages about programmes launched are 
running at the bottom of the screen, the upper panel appears with the 
plugins on it. Then it disappears and I have a xfdesktop and compiz. So 
I run 'xfce4-panel &' from terminal and everything is up and running. It 
looks like it starts too early. I have no idea how to get an error 
message as I do not have anything up when it starts and crashes.
