Hi Randy,

When I installed XFce-4 and tried to start its session mcs segfaults
telling that /etc/xdg needed to be exported in XDG_CONFIG_DIRS. After
exporting the variable the session began to start without problems; I
retried various times without exporting the variable and mcs always
segfaulted with the same error, that's all.
