i've tested the lines offered by Zaphod Beeblebrox
for getting a quicker start for KDE apps
& created a 1-line version which seems to work ok when added to 'xinitrc'.
i don't know what patch format is preferred
nor can i be sure that i have the default version of 'xinitrc',
so i can't submit a regular patch without further advice,
but below are the lines i recommend be added to 'xinitrc'
between 'xfdesktop&' & 'panel=`which xfce4-panel`':

  # To get the first KDE application to start more quickly
  # after beginning a new XFCE session, uncomment this line:
  #( i=0 ; while test $[ `/sbin/pidof -s xfce4-panel` ] -eq "0" ; do sleep 1 ; i=$(( i + 1 )); done ; kdeinit ) &
