There is at least one PR filed against this. A quick work around is to
delete 'xfce4-session' from your PC and then start Xfce4. It should
start correctly although you will be missing the services supplied by
the 'session' add-on, which is required I believe by the xfce meta
port. At least you can get Xfce4 up and running.
I cannot believe that this update was vetted thoroughly, however, it is
a little to late to bitch about it now. These sort of problems are
becoming all to common place lately, IMHO.
