Your problem is not xfce but xorg. It went through massive changes in 
7.1 and it's now mandatory to have a /etc/X11/xorg.conf. You have to add
Option "AllowEmptyInput" "Off" statement as last line in "ServerLayout" 
section. Doing console command Xorg -config /etc/X11/xorg.conf will 
build you one.  By the way i used the package version of xfce4 on 7.1 
and it's working just fine after i added the above xorg fixes.
