No, Edscott is right. The problem is in libxfce4util. Appended a simple 
program that illustrates the problem. I've done some debugging on this, but I 
haven't figured out whats wrong so far. Both xfce_get_userfile_r and 
xfce_get_homefile_r seem to be broken. The code is quite simple, but for some 
reason I cannot seem to find the problem. Any help would be appreciated.
