Bug Description

In xfdesktop 4.11 the user can assign different wallpapers to different workspaces. This feature breaks the thunar-wallpaper-plugin in its current form.

In Xubuntu Trusty, we're using xfdesktop4.11, hence we need a patch.

Luckily, there is a patch to update the thunar-wallpaper-plugin to work with xfdesktop4.11 upstream, attached to this bugreport:

Please include it in the packaging, as it probably won't be merged upstream before the 4.12 stable release/s.
