Package: xfce4-utils
Version: 4.8.3-1
Severity: normal
File: /etc/xdg/xfce4/xinitrc

Hi there.
In /etc/xdg/xfce4/xinitrc threre is some code which start ss-agent.
In my configuration I use my own agent. x11-common in it's configuration
(/etc/X11/Xsession.d/90x11-common_ssh-agent) correctly check that SSH_AUTH_SOCK
already set and skip starting of ssh-agent.
But xfce tries to start it anyway, so I should tune hidden config property to
disable this behavior.
I think this is not correct and xfce should not start ssh-agent if there is one
already started.
