[opensuse] remote xfce4 through ssh

It's a long time I was out of openSUSE bussiness, but I hope to be able to come back, at least a bit :-)

I'm setting up a new hosted server with openSUSE 13.3 and I uodate my own doc here:

every time I build a new one I have more power (for this one I7 processor, 24Gb ram!) and try do do some better config.

Just now I try to have an xfce remote session. I could use VNC or freenix, but I had in the past problems with this (I have to run VirtualBox on the server and too many virtualization layers do not fit well), so I would like now to use simpler way, that is X remote.

I connect to the server with "ssh -X -C root@xxxxxxxxx". I can launch yast2, xeyes, but if I try "startxfce4" I get only a partial session (and lot of messages)

I get the initial mouse logo, and the taskbar, but no desktop and the taskbar seems to reflect the local windows, not the server ones.

is it at all possible to export the complete xfce session? how?
