[Pkg-xfce-devel] Bug#788960: xfdesktop4: dragging icons from desktop to thunar copies instead of moves

Package: xfdesktop4
Version: 4.10.2-3
Severity: normal

If I drag icons of files or directories from the desktop to a
directory shown in a thunar window which is on the same filesystem 
as ~/Desktop, the files are copied instead of moved.

In gnome desktop, files would be moved from desktop to Nautilus
if ~/Desktop and the directory shown in Nautilus are on the same
filesystem, otherwise they would be copied.  This is typically what
users expect.
