Hi, I'm using xfce4.8 on FreeBSD and facing an issue related to
superkey. I think the issue is very similar to Ubuntu's bug #568401.

Indicator applets open when pressing S or M key via NX, VNC
D key (alone) shows desktop over Xrdp

 1. Start xfce4 via Xvnc (VNC is RealVNC)
   $ Xvnc :20 -geometry 1280x800 -depth 24 -rfbauth ~/.vnc/passwd \
   -bs -ac -nolisten tcp  -localhost -dpi 96
   $ DISPLAY=:20 startxfce4
 2. Connect to Xvnc session
   $ vncviewer :20
 3. Start some application via VNC ex. mousepad, xterm
 4. Type small p, will be treated as superkey.

 Remove following lines.
 $ grep Super ~/.config/xfce4/xfconf/xfce-perchannel-xml/*

Does anyone in same situation?
