Xfce under VNC

I'm having trouble starting an Xfce session under VNC.  This used
to work prior to upgrading to 4.6.1 (from either 4.2.x or 4.4.x,
not sure which).  Since I run Xfce on my console, I need a different
configuration in VNC.  Here's my .vnc/xstartup:


   export XDG_CONFIG_HOME=/users/djc/.config2
   export XDG_CACHE_HOME=/users/djc/.cache2
   startxfce4 &

When starting VNC, I get the following in the log file and Xfce does
not start in the VNC X server:

   ** ERROR **: Another session manager is already running

Any clues what I might be doing wrong?
