This is new to me. I didn't know that til now. What version of xfce4-session 
you are using exactly (recent version provide a --version command line 
option)? I need some more infos to fix this: What SM clients are running (-> 
Session Control)? Does manual session saving work? Do you use smproxy? Have 
you tried to logout while only the XFce components are running, that is no 
xterms etc. but only the panel, the desktop, taskbar, wm and maybe the 
iconbox? Is it 100% reproducible or does it happen only from time to time? Is 
there any message in .xsession-errors that could explain whats going on here?
