As you said, upstream is aware of the problem so I don't think it'll be fixed
anytime soon, you'll have to wait.

I don't think there's a proper solution than fixing xfdesktop code, and this
won't happen. If by chance you know C and can hack xfdesktop, maybe upstream
will accept patches for this issue, but nobody knows...
