Thanks for the suggestions, I got -current up and running and will try xfce4.8pre1 later. BTW, netselect is a utility I've found to help select the fastest mirror relative to my location, which helped me solve my isp rsync woes. (each time i cancel a rsync session, i have to reset my wireless router and get a new wan ip before I can rsync again.)

Perhaps the most important achievement we will accomplish with Xfce 4.8 is that, despite suffering from the small size of the development team from time to time, the core of the desktop environment has been aligned with today’s desktop technologies such as GIO, ConsoleKit, PolicyKit, udev and many more. A lot of old cruft like has been stripped from the core as well, as has happened with HAL and ThunarVFS (which is still around for compatibility reasons).
