I update xfce4.4.0 to 4.4.1,too.
Now,I have fixed the problem.
I have degraded xfce4.4.0 again.And everything is back to normal!Everything
is OK now.I don't even need to change any configuration file.

Thank you for your advice!
Maybe your advice can fix my problem.
Since xfce4.4.1 is unstable in my linux(I use gentoo),I degrade to the
stable version and the problem is fixed now.
Maybe I will try your advice later......
Thank you all!
