The XFCE4's maintainer claimed to have merged the patch for this bug here:
https://bugzilla.xfce.org/show_bug.cgi?id=11107#c67 on 2016-08-12.

A new version of xfce-settings (4.12.1) has been released on 2016-09-15
so we can assume that the fix is integrated in the release.

Note that the patch is not the same as the one I've linked in comment
#107. I still have to test the new version.

Note also that the 4.12.1 version was not integrated in ubuntu 16.10 so
we still have to recompile and install it manually :(

Bug description:
  I had an HTPC with Mythbuntu 12.04 installed.  Upon upgrading a new
  behavior that if the TV is power cycled it no longer detects a link
  with the HTPC.

  When this happens I can find in the xorg log that there is an
  accompanying log item:

  [ 39829.509] (II) NVIDIA(0): Setting mode "NULL"

  After debugging with NVIDIA at
  detected/ we've deteremined it's a X client that reacts to the RANDR
  events causing the mode to be set to NULL.

  Working through the list in an Xfce environment, the culprit is
  xfsettingsd.  If xfsettingsd is running, it causes the TV to come up
  in a NULL mode.  If it's killed, it remains in the mode it was
  previously running in.

  Until this is fixed, this behavior can be worked around with a simple shell 
  #Fix TV state when HDMI link is lost.

  for MODE in $BAD_MODE $GOOD_MODE; do
   DISPLAY=:0 xrandr --output $OUTPUT --mode $MODE
   sleep 2
