I run Xfce on my desktop machine with two screens (:0.0, :0.1) using
the default XDG dirs ($HOME/.config and $HOME/.cache. I also like
to run a VNC server on this machine with Xfce as the desktop environment.
I start Xfce within the VNC server as follows:
However, if I alter the "Window shortcuts" in the "Window Manager
Preferences" settings panel in the VNC server session, the keyboard
shortcuts are modified for the instance running on :0.0 and :0.1 as
well. It appears that the same custom shortcuts file is being used
between the two instances of Xfce.
I think one instance of xfwm4 can manage more than one screen.

Yes, it can and does manage multiple screens. That is how my primary desktop
While composing a longer reply explaining what I need, I did some checking
and found that the problem is that the key theme is not stored under an
XDG directory, it is stored in $HOME/.themes/..., so the same theme was
being modified by both displays. Now that I know this, I can just create
a different named theme and point the VNC instance at it.
I'm going to close the bug as INVALID.
