Hi, I use mainly XFS too, and I encounter the problem from time to time. In most case, it's due to a FS fullness, and even if I free 
some space before closing Xfce, date is over for ever, including configuration files that shouldn't have been modified. So I took 
the habit to save from time to time my configuration files with a script(it saves configuration from Bash, Icedove, etc. too) 
without having warned others about this behaviour, however I always though it's a huge bug.

Bien cordialement, Stephane Ascoet
