Package: xfdesktop4
Version: 4.4.2-7
Severity: normal

i'm fond of xfce AND openarena, and since latest debian version 
screen stays black when i exit openarena.
How to reproduce : launch openarena, then quit.
Symptoms : 
- black screen
- mouse cursor visible
- right-click shows xfce menu, but without background refresh
- panels react, but are invisible and launched apps are not visible 
- when disconnecting x session, black screen disappears and for a split 
second windows are visible, just before x shuts down.
It seems that bug is triggered with by a recent xfdesktop4 update, but i 
could be wrong. I guess it's not an openarena bug, because it is not 
triggered with gnome or kde sessions.
I have trouble reverting to previous xfdesktop4 unstable package, is 
there a way to get it, or to get the corresponding source package ? (i 
emptied my package cache since then).
