Yes, I understand what it's trying to do, I just want to turn it off ;-)
I'd like to have xfwm4 using mcs for its own stuff, but let ROX-Session
handle XSettings (ie, have running xfwm4 ONLY do window manager things).
I guess anyone wanting to run xfwm4 in GNOME, etc, would have the same

Of course, once new-conf is implemented we can share the settings and the
user can configure things from either, but that's quite a way off :-(

Looks like this was actually caused by the upgrade to GTK+-2.2 (it
helpfully unsets the _NET_WM_DESKTOP property for you... nice).
