Misplaced window - it's SciTE, but it occurs on every other freshly open window.
One more thing (maybe it helps): maximizing of such window by taskbar works

It seems that you were right :| It's my fault.
I should have investigate outcome of xfce4 installer... it installed with /usr
prefix, but it loads from previous version installed with /usr/local.
I'm very sorry for this.
