Default desktop configuration XFCE 4.12 (Ubuntu 16.04)

Migrating my standard "teaching room" build of Ubuntu (with the xubuntu package installed, so possibly I should describe it as Xubuntu) from 14.04 to 16.04.  I've found several differences, including this one

The default desktop configuration file is no longer


but is instead


In order to provide every user with the same default desktop I copy in a version of the first file. Under 16.04 the user's background is the default XFCE wallpaper.  So now I copy in the second file and everything is as it was.
