[Solved] XFCE4 attempts to rmdir /home/[user] on login, .xsession-errors

I'm stumped trying to find where this command is started
at the top of .xsession-errors is

rmdir: failed to remove `/home/west/': Permission denied
mv: `/home/west/Templates' and `/home/west/Templates' are the same file
Templates migration failed
xfce4-settings-helper: Another instance is already running. Leaving...

It is only happening under Xubuntu12.04
and I have stumped them
https://answers.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+question/224675


I've checked autostart, xdg, xinitrc and beyond
and catfished the drive forv "rmdir" the text

No known rootkits found with rkhunter, checkrootkit, lynis

Any ideas?

I've used Linux since 1998, I'm not great nor a dolt

Solved. No reason what was going on.
I was not using sessions, but I decided to turn save session on and get prompted on login.
That cleared the faulty default session.
Wish there was a way to check for corrupt sessions
