Hi MMacD,
Whilst I agree the current situation is not optimal, it is clearly explained in
the message printed when the xfce4-session package is installed.

As root, create the file /usr/local/etc/polkit-1/rules.d/50-shutdown.rules with
the following contents:
polkit.addRule(function (action, subject) {
        if (( == "org.freedesktop.consolekit.system.restart" ||
   == "org.freedesktop.consolekit.system.stop" ||
   == "org.freedesktop.consolekit.system.suspend" ||
   == "org.freedesktop.consolekit.system.hibernate") &&
            subject.isInGroup("operator")) {
                return polkit.Result.YES;

Then simply make sure your user is a member of the operator group. You may need
a reboot to get the new config to take effect.

You are the assignee for the bug.
