If I copy my XML-Files to /etc/xdg/xfce4 will be all correct loaded!

xfce4-desktop.xml (I have modified background-image-settings)
xcfe4-session.xml (I have modified visiblity of the buttons on 

Other settings will be correct loaded from /etc/xdg/xlinux/xfce4..., 
example: xfce4-panel.xml

Can please anyone check the Sourcecode for this behavior?
Can anyone said explain what I do wrong?

I hope for help!
