[PLUG] Wine and orage problems on Xubuntu Hardy

OK, silly problem, but I can't find solutions in Google.

I have Wine installed on Hardy.  Using Gnome everything is fine.  Using 
Xfce (via xubuntu-desktop), The "Programs" sub-menu is not shown.  It's 
there and selected; it works in Gnome; it shows in Apps, Settings, Main 
Menu.  It just doesn't display under Xfce.  Naturally, that makes Wine 
kinda hard to use.

Semi-related, how do I get that %^*&^% Orage calendar and Preferences 
screen from popping up every time I login?  Who thought *that* was a 
good idea?  I had the calendar part set to start hidden, but the prefs 
page and calendar always show up on login anyway.  Ah, OK, it seems 
orage is being run as 'orage -p' by Xfce from 
~/.cache/sessions/xfce4-session-host:0, but I can't figure out why.  I 
have saved session turned off and I've deleted that file and it still 
comes back sometimes.  I finally got so annoyed I zeroed out 
/usr/bin/orage, but that's probably a sub-optimal (if very satisfying)

"Microsoft Tax" = the additional hardware & yearly fees for the add-on
software required to protect Windows from its own poorly designed and
implemented self, while the overhead incidentally flattens Moore's Law.
