Do you mean that if only a gnome notification system is *installed*
even if it's not running, it could interfere?

Yes, GNOME is installed and I used to use it before I switched to Xfce.
No 'notify(d)' process is running, and I don't know any gnome
notification program that could be running (no gnome-* program involved
in notifications or sound is running).

That's a very good point: every time skype plays a sound (pulseaudio),
every time I run `aplay`. Sound using mplayer or audacious is not doing
that. Apart from this I don't have any desktop sound thru Xfce, I don't
know if that's normal or not, but it's not the topic here.
