There is indeed an ordering issue. This fixes it for me:

$ head ~/bin/xfce4-panel ~/bin/Thunar ~/bin/xfdesktop 
==> /home/olaf/bin/xfce4-panel <==
/bin/sleep 5
exec /usr/bin/xfce4-panel "$@"

==> /home/olaf/bin/Thunar <==
/bin/sleep 8
exec /usr/bin/Thunar "$@"

==> /home/olaf/bin/xfdesktop <==
/bin/sleep 5
exec /usr/bin/xfdesktop "$@"

The delay might be smaller, I have will see how short it could be.
There is still nm-applet, which is a direct child of xfce4-session.
I will check if the same hack fixes its fontsize as well.

Any ideas what might happen during this delay?
