XFce4 and Fedora

Folks, is anyone out there building XFce4 to Fedora?  I ask because
lately (last few days), for some reason my box has been locking up in
X.  And I don't mean a little sad lock, I mean a real process-1 type
lock that b0rks the system dead (only reset button or power switch
help).  The odd thing is...it only seems to do this in XFce4.  I've
never had it happen in Gnome.  

Now, to be fair, it also always happens while Galeon is open, so I
rebuilt 1.3.10 against my box in case.  But, before I go back to test
XFce4 again, I wanted to see if there was a Fedora RPM set of XFce out
there.  That is, in case it was some low-level dependency (some .so or
other thing that my up2date's have changed including glibc, gcc, and
other fun stuff) so I could rule out XFce as the problem.

All in all, I'm pretty sure it's not XFce's fault, but I'm just going
through the "what was open at the time" phase of bug-hunting.
