xfdesktop icon tooltip suggestion

When hovering on a file/folder icon on the desktop, only the type, size and
last modification time appear. I would suggest to add first the name of the
object in the first line of the tooltip.
Rationale :
- the name of the file/folder is usually hidden by the tooltip window
- in case of a long name, the string appears truncated on the desktop. Users
may then want to see the full untruncated name, without necessarily entering
into editing the icon ; being able to see the full name  just by hovering is an
easy solution to these very minor issues.

Please see attached patch. This would require a slight update of the po files
(adding "%s\n"  in the  msgid and msgstr in two places, as I have done e.g. for
 fr.po ), could be easily done by an ad hoc script
