I don't know if you're aware but session management as
implemented in Xfce has become a lot less useful as many
GTK/GNOME applications have dropped XSMP support recently in
favor of a GNOME-specific DBus API.
In case of autostart there has been a similar development
(several GNOME-specific keys and a complementary DBus API)
although the situation is not as bad since regular applications
and non-GNOME daemons are not affected. (It is a problem e.g.
with GNOME-keyring which is also highly useful on Xfce.)
