Thunar = filemanager,
xfdesktop = desktop manager. They are two separate programs.

Yes, it's true.

AFAIK this is not a high priority right now. Since managing the files
on the desktop is a lot like file managing, it would be nice to have
Thunar handle it. But since that would require quite some work, I
don't think anyone is planing on doing that right now.
