Sounds about right. Any idea when the patch will be implemented?

2 seconds? I can't wait 2 seconds. `killall -9 xfdesktop` works much
faster. ;-)

Got another issue where 
1) xfce-terminals close when I open another one
2) liferea and transmission-remote-gtk close after a while

The second might be gtk3 related I already tried a downgrade from 3.10.4
to 3.10.2. However no such luck:
write(2, "\n(transmission-remote-gtk:10974)"..., 123
(transmission-remote-gtk:10974): Gdk-CRITICAL **:
gdk_x11_screen_lookup_visual: assertion 'GDK_IS_SCREEN (screen)' failed
) = 123
--- SIGSEGV {si_signo=SIGSEGV, si_code=SEGV_MAPERR, si_addr=0x6c} ---
+++ killed by SIGSEGV +++
Segmentation fault

I must say, this is the first time I have such issues. Probably going back
to openSUSE 12.3, which is a pity as 13.1 is to become evergreen. :-(
