Hi All,

for quite some time I saw (due to openSUSE Factory setting MALLOC_CHECK_
and friends) that the tooltips for xfdesktop icons obviously had an
use-after-free problem. Today I finally went ahead and fixed it :-)

all the gory details are in, for completeness I
also filed a bug at

The attached patch fixes the issue for me.

Best regards,
