Hm, not reproducible here. Can you attach a gdb to the xfce4-session process 
when it happens again and send me a backtrace please.

Works fine, except that the xterm from which the while... stuff is executed 
dies after some time for some weird reason. xfce4-session reports an 
unexpected socket close() at that time. Again a backtrace would be nice :-)
