On another forum I found a better solution than own_window_type override.

# Create own window instead of using desktop (required in nautilus)
own_window yes
own_window_argb_visual yes
own_window_type desktop
own_window_transparent yes
own_window_hints undecorated,below,sticky,skip_taskbar,skip_pager

This works with Xfce compositing on.

Thanks for this, how much additional overhead does compositing add? For any other folks who don't know, this can be enabled/disabled through "Settings", "Window Manager Tweaks", "Compositor" tab.
