GTK theme not set at startup

Hi guys,

since about 3 weeks or so, Xfce doesn't set my GTK theme anymore at
startup instead the default theme (I think it's "Xfce") is loaded.
I have to set it manually after startup in the appearance settings
dialog and this works fine. But it's not set automatically anymore.

I don't assume it's a bug in Xfce since nobody else reported this issue
but instead it might be a problem with my local config, maybe.

In /home/enrico/.config/xfce4/xfconf/xfce-perchannel-xml/xsettings.xml
the ThemeName property has the correct value for my theme (before and
after startup of Xfce).

The only thing I could imagine is that it is related to the fact that
my theme is stored in ~/.themes/ instead of $prefix/share/themes.
Does this make any difference?

Any ideas?
