You need to recompile xfdesktop and be sure that the menu module links
to the correct library. This situation can happen any time an
incompatible change occurs to one of the libraries such that it requires
a major version bump.
However, I'm not sure why such a bump was made. Benny, it looks like
you incremented the library major in the end of January when you
removed the autogenerated files and added support for xfce4-dev-tools.
Why was this necessary? The ABI of the library hadn't been broken, AFAICT.
