Hello (sorry for not using trac but actually I can't).
I don't remember if at that time I've specified the exact problem, 
anyway with those instrs. when I started xfce session it caused a 
mcs-manager segfault reporting literally the XDG* (needed export) - 
tried a lot of times with and without the export; I don't remember 
because I've upgraded it first to version 4.3 beta and now to version 
4.4, anyway the segfault paragraph reported a phrase like "You need to 
export /etc/xdg in your XDG* environment".
I would like to add another comment specific to a person but I find it 
superfluous so I'm not going to write it. Nothing else to say.
