Xfdesktop Setting testcase details do not correspond to application (#1288893)
In: Ubuntu Manual Tests

vbox 4.3.8 64bit
According to testcase instructions which don't correspond to the setting window dialogues (e.g., there is no box for 'single image' or 'green plus...', etc.), I have either a different version of settings application or the testcase instructions are not relevant to the installed settings application. (The testcase instructiions would be appropriate to this setting program in 13.10)

The first time the xfdesktop-settings window was opened the icons appeared to change size, looks like it's reported in: https://bugzilla.xfce.org/show_bug.cgi?id=9199 It's a minor cosmetic bug.

Brightness and Saturation sliders seem to be buggy but it's probably moot because this version will most likely not make it into Trusty and the new version does not have these sliders.
