Well, first you need to figure out what's actually crashing.  If X
itself is what's crashing, then regardless of your differing experience
while using Xfce and GNOME, the fault is with X and we probably can't
help you.  If it's an Xfce app, it would probably be xfce4-session, as
that's the only app that would cause X to exit on a crash.
