Package: xfce4
Severity: minor

Dear Maintainer,
Under lenny, when right-clicking on the xfce4 desktop, the user was
presented with the Applications menu, just as if they had clicked on the
"Start" button. In squeeze and wheezy the user is presented with a
context menu similar to that which would be presented if they had
right-clicked on a desktop icon.
This context menu has "Applications" as a sub-menu but it is far more
convenient for this "Applications" menu to be the top level menu in the
case where the user has right-clicked on an empty area of desktop.
Whether or not the "Applications" sub-menu appears is configurable.
It should also be possible to configure whether the Applications menu or
the context menu appears during a right-click.
