As Olivier stated there is no package of xfce4-session in I suggest 
you checkout a fresh copy of xfce4-session from CVS HEAD and try that one.

Right click on the system tray icon of xfce4-session and select "Session 
Control". You will be presented with a list of clients that are currently 
connected to the session manager.

That sounds like one of the SM clients is broken and did not complete the 
SaveYourself phase as required. I'm currently working on a work-around for 
broken applications.

Then you don't use it :-)

Since the XFce components are proven to work fine with xfce4-session the 
problem seems to be something else.

What ever file the messages generated by your X session are logged to. I don't 
remember where Solaris sends this to by default.
