It seems to work very well.

It does have a focus issue, however:
     1. Run the daemon if it's not running: xfrun4 --daemon
     2. Run the client, so that the run dialog opens.
     3. Press the Cancel button. The Cancel button gets the focus, and
        the dialog closes.
     4. Run the client again.

The result is that the Cancel button still has the focus. The focus
should be moved to the entry before the dialog is showed.
