Porting xfdesktop to Gtk3

Hi again Florian,
Your work is getting much more polished, just a few rough edges I could 
find (some I mentioned before, I hope to be more clear now):
- Sometimes when a window is focused, the Trash tooltip doesn't appear
- Help confirmation message is too wide (see attachment)
- Desktop dialog content doesn't fill the window vertically (see attachment)
- Icon's label not themed correctly (see attachment, changing theme 
doesn't make any difference, the labels always have that ugly gray 
background and the selected icon is not colored).
- And the annoying selection rectangle =)

Thanks your work!

André Miranda
