Package: xfce4-appfinder
Version: 4.8.0-3
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

not sure if bug#659926 is related, but
when I dragndrop an item with xfce* items there are no icons
 (gnome-classic,  be sure the
 Applications/SystemTools/Preferences/Advanced Settings is checked
 , and toggle it's first item to allow DragNDrop from the menu
 , a relogin is required)

However, everything* else that gets dragged creates a flawless icon/link to their 
respective application.. (you may argue that i'm not using xfce, but
ApplicationFinder is in the gnome-classic menu under Accessories :/

I notice something strange (the video i made below illustrates this), though there
are "no" visible icons for xfce, the ".desktop" files are actually made for them in
~/Desktop . I illustrate that moving these problematic xfce .desktop links from ~/Desktop
to ~/1 and then back again to ~/Desktop, .. still there are no visible icons
(I'm guessing at least the xfce help application should be visible despite I'm not
on xfce)

I don't expect this bug to be important.. But apparently there is a problem when
trying to make a DragNDrop copy of 'Web Browser'.. This application launches flawlessly
in my gnome-classic environment and a dragNdrop of this shortcut should be allowed imho
(There is another item called 'Web' and that drag-n-drops properly  to the ~/Desktop properly,
 but not 'Web Browser')
