[Pkg-xfce-devel] Bug#576962: xfdesktop4: Sometimes screen lock fails

Package: xfdesktop4
Version: 4.6.1-1
Severity: normal

I have configured "xflock4" to run when I use the keyboard shortcut


This is done with** (xfdesktop:2000): CRITICAL **: xfdesktop_file_icon_manager_delete_selected: assertion `selected' failedin the XFCE keyboard settings. It works most of the time, but
not always. When It doesn work, an error message appears in .xsession-errors:

** (xfdesktop:2000): CRITICAL **: xfdesktop_file_icon_manager_delete_selected:
	assertion `selected' failed

However, while the screen lock function doesn't work, some of my other keyboard
shortcuts do work, e.g. my assignment of amixer to the keypress XF86AudioLowerVolume 

Another thing: when the screen lock shortcut does work, it doesn't matter which
application has the keyboard focus. When it does not work, and I have
xfce4-terminal in focus, I think it prints "~7" on the command line when I press
CRTL ALT Delete.

Best regards
