Having recently upgraded a machine from f16 I ended up with some issues that I
did not yet manage to resolve. These all seem to point at a problem with the
management of the desktop. BTW, the upgrade was f16->f17->f19, which was not
overly painful but still left some cleanup for me to do - I may have broken

- the wallpaper image is not being displayed (always a black background).
   I used all the ways I could find to set the image, and verified that the
   necessary settings now show it, yet it is not displayed. Setting a solid
   colour also does not work.

- the "filesystem" icon never shows up on the desktop.
   It is mentioned in ~/.config/xfce4/desktop/*. In Settings Editor I see that
   "show-{filesystem,home}" are both set yet only "home" shows.

- the top panel auto-hide works after a boot but shows permanently once a
   hibernate/resume is done.

- scroll bars are now missing the arrows at the end.
