[Pkg-xfce-devel] Bug#715313: xfce4-appfinder: Always displays on :0.0 (does not honor $DISPLAY)

Package: xfce4-appfinder
Version: 4.10.1-1
Severity: important


It appears that xfce4-appfinder does not correctly honor the $DISPLAY
variable and and always displays on :0.0.  The --display= switch on the
command line that is documented in xfce4-appfinder(1) is also ignored.

For example, if the $DISPLAY variable is set to be :0.1, the
xfce4-appfinder appears on :0.0.  I have tried all of the following and
xfce4-appfinder always displays on the :0.0 screen:

% xfce4-appfinder --display=":0.1"
% env DISPLAY=:0.1 xfce4-appfinder
% export DISPLAY=:0.1
% xfce4-appfinder

This also happens when xfce4-appfinder is run as xfrun4.

This makes it difficult to start applications on an X screen other than
:0.0.  No prior versions of xfce4-appfinder (xfrun4) exhibited this

>From what I can tell no other Xfce4 utilities exhibit this problem.
