i've also added  3  lines at the end to close KDE down nicely,
so the quasi-patch should read:

  # If you use KDE applications, you can get them to start more quickly
  # after beginning a new XFCE session by uncommenting this line:
  #( i=0 ; while test $[ `/sbin/pidof -s xfce4-panel` ] -eq "0" ; do sleep 1 ; i=$(( i + 1 )); done ; kdeinit ) &

these lines sb added right at the end of 'xinitrc':

  # These lines will shut KDE applications down cleanly, if uncommented:
  #artsshell -q terminate

i've tested these additions & they seem to work satisfactorily.
