Arrow keys not working on desktop

Hello everybody,
I'm using XFCE 4.10 on Ubuntu on both my work PC (Ubuntu 13.04, I think) and home (Ubuntu 13.10). On both I recently experienced a strange issue: once I select an item on the desktop with the mouse I can't move the selection with the arrow keys. It works inside thunar and any other application, it's just on the desktop that it does not work. Did you ever experience anything like that? What could it be?

Thank you to everybody

Running latest xfdesktop from git (version: 4.11.2git-be66a78).
I don't have icons enabled on my desktop. When I enabled them I saw the same behaviour. Probaby best to create a bug report over at https://bugzilla.xfce.org/.

FYI. Looks like a fix has been committed to the git tree: http://git.xfce.org/xfce/xfdesktop/comm … 07147c1fff.

Probably best to ask the repo owners. Are you using Xubuntu? Or an Xfce PPA?
