sorry to be the bringer of another snippet of bad news,
but in the course of trying to solve the thin-text-box problem
i have uninstalled & reinstalled RC1 several times using BM's installer.
yes, it's really great & BM deserves lots of congratulations for making it,
but there's one thing wrong: after running it on KDE
-- i'm afraid running it in Xfce itself might cause other problems -- ,
when i next start KDE its menus -- desktop (R-click) & K-start -- have gone,
leaving just the bare bones of 'logout' etc, but no apps of any kind.
moving  ~/.kde3.3  aside, restarting KDE, removing the new  ~/.kde3.3 ,
then moving the old one back restores everything as it should be.
the Xfce installer must be removing a file/dir too many somewhere,
perhaps in  /var  or in  ~/.config  or  ~/.cache .
