It could be nautilus runnning, you're right. Make sure that xfdesktop is
running when using the switch, and remember to save your session at
logout, so it'll be started the next time (and not nautilus).

ps aux | grep nautilus
pkill nautilus
xfdesktop &

Does it fix the problem ?

(I agree that this switch can be confusing, though)
