When I was still running Xubuntu, something like this happened for me one time.

Try going to your desktop settings dialog, and make sure the checkbox that says something like "Use XFCE as Desktop Manager" is checked.

I haven't been on Xfce for over a week, so I don't remember all the aspects of it. I hope this helped.
