XFDesktop Wallpaper Folder Selection

I patched the point release file with the additional 
gtk_file_filter_add_mime_type() functions, and it seems my question is 
answered.  This does resolve the issue, at least in my distro (which 
currently adds no patches to xfdesktop-4.12.3)

This should work until the next point release (unless our maintainer 
decides to package a git version).

The list has been quiet the last couple of days, so if anybody sees this 
thread, note that my questions have been answered for now.
