This is working for me in virtualbox on 64bit snapshot. Are you getting 
the "gksu" dialog at all? Does it prompt for the password and then not 
show up at all? This was a gksu bug that I thought was fixed.

I don't even see Applications -> Development on my install here :( But I 
did add xfce4-dev-tools to the plugins.

Ditto, don't see any of these categories on my system...

Yea, I think its looking for a firefox / opera or something of that sort.

Same as before.

XFCE doesn't have a built-in one like kmail or such. Will need to 
install one from AppCafe, then select it.

Don't see this crash here either.

Don't have these cats here.

Works here on amd64.

Starts just fine for me. Close the red "shield" icon in the tray first, 
then run this and you'll see that icon appear again. It doesn't have any 
other main window to view.

Works here, pkg_info shows clipman installed by default.

Its already installed, but running xfce4-screenshooter causes a 
seg-fault here.

I'll have to try a 32bit snapshot next. Its possible some of the 
packages are acting differently on it.
