Sorry, that's the wrong example, the right example is:

- Move or delete the xfwm4.xml file from the .config path
- Start Xfce
- Go to Window Manager Tweaks->Compositor
- Note that the compositor is enabled, and related setting changes (e.g.
opacity of window decorations) successfully apply.

Yet, on the next startup cycle, xfwm4 crashes. (And it crashes with my
previous example of starting with the compositor turned off, and then
turning it on.)
