Thank you upstream developing and packaging team for replacing the
effected packages. Yay!

These packages have now been upgraded in Sid, 'gir1.2-gtk-3.0,
libgtk-3-0. libgtk-3-bin. libgtk-3-common' if you have been using
testing and where effected you can temp add Sid repos and upgrade the
effected packages, it will pull in a few more packages, but it is fixed.

Rats, that didn't work for me. I am running sid. Something upgraded and
XFCE no longer starts up after boot. I have to open a terminal and enter
startx. Using synaptic I could just start re-installing XFCE packages.
But, it be broken where the drop down menu's and right click no longer
function. Drats. Ric

I was wondering if XFCE4 was infected.  Sorry to hear you're sill having
a problem.  I'm still good, both synaptic and parole are working okay on
Sid and Testing with the plasma 5 desktop.  I noticed upstream is
letting more bugs into the mix, but don't seem to be effecting me, maybe
like Jessie the next release will not be ready, but will be released
anyways, with missing packages and excuses. A fixed release cycle sucks,
where not getting some bugs fixed, just a new system every 2 years and
it seems to have started with Wheezy, when Debian decided not to fix
Wheezy's login and instead gave us Systemd instead and a whole lot more
new bugs.  I'm using Parole cause Kaffeine is pulling in VLC, why it's
pulling in VLC I don't know and it don't make since to me having two
media players to get the one I want, but Parole uses a lot less packages
to work, so I'm okay with that.  I may do a XFCE4 install on sda24 to
see what's going on, I'll start with a Jessie net-install and then
upgrade the base system to Sid/testing.  Thanks for the update.

Here's an update, completely remove package 'gtk3-engines-xfce' and see how Synaptic behaves. I had to use the console to start Synaptic, haven't checked that out yet, but after installing 'gtk3-engines-xfce' Synaptic went south, purging gtk3-engines-xfce and synaptic was okay again. Hope that helps.
