[Pkg-xfce-devel] Bug#522954: xfce4: Many user configurations are lost with upgrade to 4.6

Package: xfce4
Severity: normal

Hash: SHA1

Upgrading from 4.4 to 4.6, I lost the configuration of panel launcher icons,
icon theme and window manager theme.
I think xfce should try harder to keep them: icons and icon theme I'm using
are not part of Xfce, so they didn't change at all, and the wm theme is 
included in both versions of Xfce, so this is a case in which it should be
possible not to force the user to go all through the customisation again.
