[Pkg-xfce-devel] Bug#715049: xfdesktop4: drag-and-drop always copies files

Package: xfdesktop4
Version: 4.8.3-2
Severity: minor
Tags: upstream

I have the desktop configured to display File/Launcher icons and some files and
folders on the desktop. When I grab a file with the mouse and move it to a
folder, a copy of that file is created in the folder, but the original file is
not removed.

This is in contrast to the behaviour of all other desktop environments I know
of, all of which "move" the file to the folder in such a situation. XFCE should
to do that too.
