First of all sorry about my bad english!
The problem is xfdesktop is dead, there is no Wallpaper nor Icons as in the image, I was using only Firefox and I tried to open a cd using an icon in the desktop and and the Wallpaper and Icons just drop. The sistem is Debian 6.0 whith Xfce. Shot down the machine doesn't solve anything.
If I run xfdesktop in a terminal the outcome is:
I have no idea how to solve this.

Yeah I can confirm this. After "xfdesktop" upgrade, this happened to me too and reloading xfdesktop is not helping
EDIT: Alright I re-installed xfdesktop then got it working by setting some background wallpaper from Xfce Menu > Settings > Desktop (since I did not use any before just black color) then rebooting. Got everything back to normal again.

I experience the same problem after upgrading to xfdesktop 4.10.1: the desktop was gone (only black background) and using the settings manager did not change anything. Restarting seemed to solve the problem, but after changing to an image background the settings manager stopped working again (or it works, but the changes are not taken over). Restarting again (several times) did not help.
Reinstalling 4.10.0 solved the problem.
same problem here. My distro is Xubuntu 12.04.2. Try to reinstall xfdesktop but no effect. The problem continues.
Fresh installation of this system is no solution. When i update xfce 4.8 to 4.10 the problem come back.
Any idea to resolve?
Official Bug https://bugzilla.xfce.org/show_bug.cgi?id=9892
There's a temporary solution. Change wallpaper from solid colors to any image. Waiting for a solution from xfce team.
Same problem with Xubuntu 12.04, plus right click on desktop doesn't work. Tried reinstalling xfdesktop and nothing happened. Nothing happens when I try to change wallpaper.
I apologize for the inconvenience, a fix is being worked on and a new release will be out this week-end.
Git users can already try the git xfce-4.10 branch which should fix the issue.
A very quick answer...
