Yeah I think you need the -4 version.  The xfce4-session in Debian is
mostly a mistake.  Upstream don't release xfce4-session with the 4.0.x
branch of xfce4 and whilst the session manager is really useful the fact
it's not maintained for the stable branch means all the problems you see
are far more likely to be Debian ones than upstream ones  (sadly ;))

You're probably better off filing bugs in (or at least checking out) the
BTS at for instance.

The -4 package should hit sarge the day after tomorrow barring disasters
I think as it's 9 of 10 days old.
