Ok. That was a very educational experiment... And the results too:

1) Killed xfdesktop (tested that right-click menu stopped working)
2) Started xfdesktop from a terminal window. Menu reappeared.
3) Tried to start seamonkey from the menu - it _worked_! No errors,
   no messages in the terminal window at all.
4) Logged out and restarted XFCE completely.
5) Seamonkey from the menu doesn't work anymore.

And now???
