Bug Description

Hi

I'm running 17.10 today's update (2017-08-12)

I've created in the Dossier Perso (~): the folder "Modèle" (because not existing)
put inside 2 files: DOC.odt & TEXT.txt

Nevertheless, when I right click on the desktop, no "new file" option is offered

$ lsb_release -rd
Description: Ubuntu Artful Aardvark (development branch)
Release: 17.10

Hi
an important new point.
I switched from wayland to X11 and surprisingly it works.
The problem then, seems to come from wayland itself
