Answering my own question, but for the sake of the archives... It seems that xfsm-shutdown-helper no longer uses sudo to gain the necessary privileges to shut the system down - instead it uses hal & policykit. Unfortunately this changeover doesn't seem to be documented anywhere - either for freebsd or xfce. However, give the user the appropriate permissions in /usr/local/etc/PolicyKit/PolicyKit.conf (see the man page for details) and it all starts working again.
