           Summary: Changing value for DESKTOP_SESSION not recognised by
        QA Contact: bjt23 at cornell.edu
          Severity: trivial
    Classification: Xfce
                OS: Linux
          Reporter: wookiebugs at gmail.com
          Hardware: Other

         Component: General
           Product: Xfce4-session

I refer to solved bug "xdg-open can't open torrent magnet links in xfce"

This was caused by the xdg-open script failing to detect an Xfce4 session
because it was looking for "xfce" or "xfce4" in the environment variable
DESKTOP_SESSION. It has now been modified to look for "Xfce Session" too.

The chaps at Portland asked me to point out that changes in the value of this
variable could cause problems for applications that use it as a test.

So this is more of a polite request than a bug, but I couldn't find a mailing
list so I've put it here and marked it "trivial", hope that's ok.
