Thanks for the bug report. I'll see about trying to get sudoers setup so this
works more transparently.

I've just checked in and built a new version that should hopefully fix this issue. 

It turns out that new Xfce can use HAL shutdown/reboot methods if available. 
I just needed to add the right buildrequirements and enable it. 

Can you check xfce4-session once it's pushed out to the mirrors, and 
let me know if that solves the problem? You can also try an unsigned copy direct
from the buildsys at:

Thanks, the update solved the problem. After updating the xfce4-session packages
I'm able to shutdown and reboot the system from xfce
