This is possibly related, but I'm only recently experiencing this
problem:

https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=849823

which says that that particular bug was fixed in xfdesktop4 version
4.12.3-4

and the versions available to me seem to be
4.12.3-3

which is apparently the latest version for stretch:
https://packages.debian.org/search?keywords=xfdesktop4

Is anyone else experiencing this?

How does this make sense, and why would a recent update have caused
me to only now experience this bug, and to not see the fixed version
of xfdesktop4?

TIA,
