No borders anymore / cannot switch between applications

Hi. I've also run into to this. (Running Debian Squeeze/Wheezy)

xfwm crashes at login. This happens so often, I've put an application
launcher on my panel so I can just click it when it happens.

Deleting ~/.config/sessions/ had been suggested somewhere as a fix,
but it hasn't been successful for me. It will fix it by restoring
defaults, but there's no guarantee it won't happen again. In fact, it
does. At least a few times a week.

I suspect there something somewhere in the Debian implementation that
is causing xfwm to crash, but I have no idea what. I've installed
Debian and closely related distros (like LMDE and #!) and they have
displayed similar behavior. Ubuntu, however, doesn't. At least as far
as I can tell.
