I guess there are two problems.

1. I might have some configuration problem with my hal or dbus:

Session quit requested. Saving state and shutting down.
LASTFM: (cleanup) Cleanup finished

** (xfce4-session:1896): WARNING **: xfsm-shutdown-helper.c:234: Failed
to contact HAL: org.freedesktop.hal.power-management.shutdown no <--
(action, result)

** (xfce4-session:33701): WARNING **: xfsm-shutdown-helper.c:234: Failed
to contact HAL: org.freedesktop.hal.power-management.reboot no <--
(action, result)

---> any idea where I can look why HAL contact failed? Maybe some
     permission problem?

2. the empty message box seems to be a string problem, see here:
