The one thing that needs to be fixed is failsafe session handling --
right now it launches the entire failsafe session in parallel, which
probably isn't the best idea.  So if you start up Xfce for the first
time ever and/or don't have a saved session at all, then it's a little
weird (but still should work ok -- assuming correct dbus setup, the
failsafe session has no ordering requirements).
