xfce4-session 4.10.1 added support for systemd. This support is optional and the package will build without systemd but it sounds like there might be a few wrinkles that still need to settle out. For now at least, you need to add --disable-systemd to the configure options, as described here: http://forum.xfce.org/viewtopic.php?id=8041
That will restore the missing buttons and you don't need to run outside the consolekit session.
Thank you kindly Pat! Shut down is now working properly again!

Set DOWNLOAD_ALL=on in slackpkg.conf by default to avoid script failures
caused by programs (wget is an example) that may require library updates.
Without this option, a program might be needed again before the supporting
libraries have been upgraded.
Recompiled with --disable-systemd.
I had seen that systemd patch on xfce4-session git, but I hadn't realized that the detection was so poor, pretty much anything will match systemd=enabled regardless. The configure disable switch will work until console-kit stops working (since it is unmaintained...wonder who let that happen?) or the xfce folks decide it's no longer needed. I'm looking for alternatives and have one brewing. Anyone has an idea, lets talk.
