[Pkg-xfce-devel] Bug#540437: xfdesktop4: keeps regenerating 'Desktop' folder in user's home dir

package: xfdesktop4
version: 4.6.1-1
severity: normal


as of the xfce 4.6 transition to untsable, there is a 'Desktop'
directory created
in the user's home folder by default, which always reappears shortly after
deletion (this did not occur in 4.4 and earlier).  i personally always set the
desktop icon type to "None" because i don't like clutter; hence i really don't
need the 'Desktop' directory, so i want it to be gone.

i reported this upstream [0], but they were unable to reproduce. perhaps
this is an issue specifically with the debian package?
