Package: xfdesktop4
Version: 4.6.2-1+b1
Severity: normal

It appears that the desktop is not remembering desktop background
image correctly on loading time. I always getting a generic desktop
background, but when entering the configuration dialog the image is
still chosen as well as changing to another image and back is bringing
up the wished image again. 

To be honest I didn't had the chance to look deeper whether I can find
any issues, but if you can give me a hint where to look I will do.
