Did you check, and I'm using slack 9.1 -- I'm assuming there might be a change, however, look at the log file for Xfree or Xorg, which ever, in /var/log see if there are any reports of loading errors.

I have to tell you...on my old system, I get exit errors all the time about resources etc and it's not had any ill effect....however, try checking those logs first....

Does this affect your desktop usage? It seems to be, somehow, there was no proper shutdown of xfce related task.

By the way, I don't understand why there is a need to edit lilo.conf? You should be editing xorg.conf.

Sorry i meant xorg.conf
i dunno why i said lilo

i am wondering if anyone else gets this error
because i get it everytime after a fresh install
i have installed 4 times today
and i really want to use slackware but this is too frustrating

Does anyone else get this same error?
It seems to be only affecting xfce

Is this error actually affecting anything? You say you get an error when you log out. Does it actually do anything? I get the "waiting for X server to shut down FreeFontPath: FPE
"/usr/share/fonts/misc" refcount is 2, should be 1; fixing." error all the time (it is pretty normal -- I got it using Slackware 11.0 too) and it doesn't affect anything.

As for the XFCE errors, I use KDE (I used to use XFCE on my older, slower PC but I don't remember if there were errors or not). Again, do they prevent you from doing anything at all or are they just annoying you? If it is the latter, well, live with it -- there's no point hunting down errors that don't actually do anything.

I think these errors are 'normal', most of the time they're invisible. If I open netscape that came with slack 9.1 from a terminal window then close netscape, I get tons of errors about missing assert statements, functions that do not exist etc...

You mean aside from closing your eyes....

You might try redirecting the output to a file

for example:

netscape 2> somefilename.

Check the manpages:

%man n exec

This might give you some idea on redirecting errors

You might also check the xorg config file for some switch, don't know about that...
