[Pkg-xfce-devel] Bug#605802: Bad syntax in Xft.xrdb

Package: xfce4-utils
Version: 4.6.2-1
Severity: minor

scripts/Xft.xrdb tries to use '#' as a comment character.  The proper 
syntax for xrdb comments is !Foo or /*Foo*/, not #Foo.  This causes 
(mostly harmless) "invalid preprocessing directive" errors to appear
in ~/.xsession-errors when starting an Xfce session.

This is an upstream bug that appears to be already fixed in Xfce's 
master git repository, although not yet in their 4.6 branch.
