Hi,
when setting up a xfce4 desktop, the ${HOME}/.config/xfce4 directory contains direct references to the store, which can later be garbage collected:
~$ grep -r "/gnu/store" .config.config/xfce4/panel/launcher-9/14865882321.desktop:Exec=/gnu/store/84x54ph8x8z2m77sln39nh5dkkjmj64g-exo-0.10.3/bin/exo-open --launch TerminalEmulator.config/xfce4/panel/launcher-11/14865882323.desktop:Exec=/gnu/store/84x54ph8x8z2m77sln39nh5dkkjmj64g-exo-0.10.3/bin/exo-open --launch WebBrowser %u.config/xfce4/panel/launcher-10/14865882322.desktop:Exec=/gnu/store/84x54ph8x8z2m77sln39nh5dkkjmj64g-exo-0.10.3/bin/exo-open --launch FileManager %u.config/xfce4/panel/launcher-12/14865882324.desktop:Exec=/gnu/store/0cgfqzxsx0mimkwqmdn9z52zk0c387kw-xfce4-appfinder-4.12.0/bin/xfce4-appfinder.config/xfce4/xfconf/xfce-perchannel-xml/xfce4-desktop.xml: <property name="last-image" type="string" value="/gnu/store/f7gfrrbwcl2xvdqmg35fnb78bkp8gjhh-xfdesktop-4.12.0/share/backgrounds/xfce/xfce-teal.jpg"/>.config/xfce4/xfconf/xfce-perchannel-xml/xfce4-desktop.xml: <property name="last-image" type="string" value="/gnu/store/f7gfrrbwcl2xvdqmg35fnb78bkp8gjhh-xfdesktop-4.12.0/share/backgrounds/xfce/xfce-teal.jpg"/>.config/xfce4/xfconf/xfce-perchannel-xml/xfce4-desktop.xml: <property name="last-image" type="string" value="/gnu/store/f7gfrrbwcl2xvdqmg35fnb78bkp8gjhh-xfdesktop-4.12.0/share/backgrounds/xfce/xfce-teal.jpg"/>.config/xfce4/xfconf/xfce-perchannel-xml/xfce4-desktop.xml: <property name="last-image" type="string" value="/gnu/store/f7gfrrbwcl2xvdqmg35fnb78bkp8gjhh-xfdesktop-4.12.0/share/backgrounds/xfce/xfce-teal.jpg"/>.config/xfce4/xfconf/xfce-perchannel-xml/xfce4-desktop.xml: <property name="last-image" type="string" value="/gnu/store/f7gfrrbwcl2xvdqmg35fnb78bkp8gjhh-xfdesktop-4.12.0/share/backgrounds/xfce/xfce-teal.jpg"/>.config/xfce4/xfconf/xfce-perchannel-xml/xfce4-desktop.xml: <property name="last-image" type="string" value="/gnu/store/f7gfrrbwcl2xvdqmg35fnb78bkp8gjhh-xfdesktop-4.12.0/share/backgrounds/xfce/xfce-teal.jpg"/>.config/xfce4/xfconf/xfce-perchannel-xml/xfce4-desktop.xml: <property name="last-image" type="string" value="/gnu/store/f7gfrrbwcl2xvdqmg35fnb78bkp8gjhh-xfdesktop-4.12.0/share/backgrounds/xfce/xfce-teal.jpg"/>.config/xfce4/xfconf/xfce-perchannel-xml/xfce4-desktop.xml: <property name="last-image" type="string" value="/gnu/store/f7gfrrbwcl2xvdqmg35fnb78bkp8gjhh-xfdesktop-4.12.0/share/backgrounds/xfce/xfce-teal.jpg"/>
I think the launcher items can be replaced by the just the executables, without a path. The desktop images can probably be replaced by /run/current-system/profile/share/backgrounds/xfce/...?

I switched to gnome shortly after that, but I see Efraim has already answered and the issue is still there.

Looking at the list again, I think what happened was special care needsto be taken adding programs to the quick launch bar at the bottom of thescreen. As for the background images, I'm guessing that each time xfcelaunches, if the references to the previous images are gone then it addsa new one. If that's the case then the background images are fixingthemselves and the shortcuts face the same 'buyer beware' as any othershortcut created.

I forgot all about this issue. Given that I haven't really seen it pop up on IRC I think I'd close it as "won't fix". I can't see good things coming from reaching into people's home directories. Maybe if there's some default applications those could be patched in the xfce package to make sure it doesn't bite those who don't have that folder yet.-- Sent from my Android device with K-9 Mail. Please excuse my brevity.

Therefore, I am closing.
