[Pkg-xfce-devel] Bug#409140: default editor in the panel is sensible-editor, which runs nano

Package: xfce4-panel
Severity: important

The editor button on the xfce panel doesn't work, because it's
configured to run sensible-editor, which, on a freshly installed system
installed from the Debian XFCE CD, points to nano.

I think that mousepad is supposed to be the default xfce editor. But it
doesn't register itself as an editor alternative at all. And
sensible-editor can't guarantee that the editor will be an X editor,
rather than one needing a terminal. Hardcoding mousepad as the default
editor seems like the best choice.

Aside from this flaw, the XFCE CD seems to be completly working now,
