I think your suspicion is probably right - I don't have a ready answer
because I have zero experience with vnc.  However, the clue is in that
error message you tracked down showing that the Xfce session manager is
not working with vnc for some reason.  If no vnc gurus pop up with an
answer here, try the Xfce list 'cause they're a helpful bunch, too.
Xfce is great - I've converted from KDE and reclaimed performance on my
ageing workstation.
