I'm having the same problem.  In my .dmrc file It has Xfce as default,
I even choose that session at startup.  When I load it looks like its
using xfce but the wallpaper and click menus are gone.  All have to to
do is 

"menu/settings/desktop settings/

Allow Xfce to manage the desktop" that and it will work fine.  It just
wont keep that checked for startup.  I am also saving my session at
logout by default.
