that won't work! you need to be in X !

yes your logs also show this. under KDE you would need to kill KDE's wm 
(not adviseable)

do this under a linux text-console (wihtout X running!):

	X -ac :0 vt07 & xterm -display :0

then start 'strace xfwm4' in the terminal that pops up in your "clean" X

(BTW your attached logs were useless because of the above notes)
