Hi Florian,
Thanks and nice work!
I've been using xfdesktop with your patch for a couple of days and 
noticed only a few glitches.
I use a notebook + monitor, after login Xfce disables the notebook's screen.
So here is what I could find:
- Desktop icons are not displayed, but if I enable both screens, the 
icons are on notebook's screen, disabling the second screen the icons 
are moved to my monitor.
- Desktop Settings dialog's content are not resizing vertically
- After dragging a file the selection rectangle appears
- "Show hidden files on desktop" make all the icons disappear (they 
reappear if icon size is changed)
- Icon context menus are not dismissed on first click out
- Icons are not correctly themed (Numix here)
