What a coincidence -- that's the exact question I joined this list to ask.

I've noticed that if I try to run xfce4-session or
/usr/share/xubuntu/session.sh from outside of gdm (e.g. in VNC), it
loads the Xfce session instead of the Xubuntu one. (I'm not sure what
the difference is, apart from the Xfce one having more icons in its
applications menu -- which seems like a plus to me.)
