xfce-mcs-manager unexpectedly started, causing trouble

I don't know why, but the XFCE4 setting manager (xfce-mcs-manager) starts automatically every time I log-in with XFCE4. Unless I kill that process by hand, no other setting manager instances could be started.

This is the output of running xfce-mcs-manager from Terminal (look at the last lines):

[cong@cmsite ~]$ xfce-mcs-manager 

(xfce-mcs-manager:9940): xfce-mcs-manager-WARNING **: Multi channel MCS manager already detected for screen 0
[cong@cmsite ~]$ 

However, the bogus process is just sitting there, but doesn't show the Setting Manager window at all.

The following is the output of pstree:

the (bogus) xfce-mcs-manage[r] process is forked from init directly
I don't know why it is there. It shouldn't be started automatically.

Any ideas? Thanks in advance!

Re: xfce-mcs-manager unexpectedly started, causing trouble

UPDATE: I made a few mistakes. The xfce-mcs-manager is a backend process that should be started when xfce starts. But the xfce-setting-show command still has no effect.

Re: xfce-mcs-manager unexpectedly started, causing trouble

And what does xfce-setting-show write in terminal?
