Hmm, do you have XDG_DATA_DIRS set and what is it set to?

There does seem to be a dodgy diff between the two versions in
-  XDG_DATA_DIRS="/usr/share:/usr/local/share:@datadir@"
+  XDG_DATA_DIRS="usr/local/share:/usr/share:/@datadir@"

(note the missing /)

If XDG_DATA_DIRS is set, does changing the line in startxfce4 so that
fix it for you?

Let us know.
