Package: xfce4-mcs-manager
Severity: important

I installed the xfce4, logged in, tried to open the settings, nothing

Then I started xfce-mcs-manager in a terminal and got this:

$ xfce-mcs-manager 

(xfce-mcs-manager:22937): libxfce4util-WARNING **: Invalid
XDG_CONFIG_HOME directory `/home/tkeitel/.config', program may behave

(xfce-mcs-manager:22937): libxfce4mcs-CRITICAL **:
mcs_manager_set_string: assertion `value != NULL' failed
Segmentation fault

The settings don't work, rendering xfce4 qite unusable for me.
