I'll reply the same.

First, to the community: accept my apologies in case you perceived rudeness.

It could be that I perceived some words in a wrong way (in case sorry for that),
but I read only and I don't see faces nor hear voices so I don't know if one thing
that seems "rude" or what is really so... (got no proves).

At the time I opened the bug I hadn't time to track it down deeply but in the passed
days it has evolved leading to XDG* discussions and changing some XFce instrs.
I confirmed yesterday (not sure) Dan some behaviours changing instrs or XDG*.
I mentioned originally Desktop File Utils because in that page there are some
suggestions for Gnome and Kde, unmodifying XFce instrs. there was a mcs-manager
segfault (or at least I had this) which literally told to export /etc/xdg in XDG*; right,
modifying XFce instrs. (I did this way some months ago) it's unnecessary to modify

Got nothing else to say.
