[Pkg-xfce-devel] Bug#524561: xfce4: Running "xfdesktop --reload" or "killall -USR1 xfdesktop" does not switch background wallpaper.

Package: xfce4
Severity: normal

It seems that having a list of wallpapers and trying to rotate them by
using "xfdesktop --reload" or "killall -USR1 xfdesktop" will no longer 
rotate the wallpaper as it did in xfce 4.4.  Logging into xfce will 
rotate the wallpaper once.  Opening up xfce desktop program, selecting
"Single Image", and then Selecting "Image List" will rotate the wallpaper once.
