Description: xfce4-session-manager complains about not being able to find /usr/bin/iceauth leading to slow startup and, apparently, breaks session management (to some degree).

Additional info:
* xfce4-session-4.6.2-1

Steps to reproduce:

Uninstall xorg-server-utils (mine was orphaned), try and startxfce4.

Not sure if xfce4-session depends, in some way, on xorg-server-utils.
This task depends upon

I think this should have been fixed by now to have a fully working xfce in arch.
How about updating xorg-server-utils and make xfce in some way depend on xorg-server-utils ?
