60x11-common_xdg_path uses $DESKTOP_SESSION which needs a sanity check
Status in xorg package in Ubuntu:
Status in xorg source package in Bionic:
contains references to $DESKTOP_SESSION variable.
On one of my Ubuntu installs this variable contains: "plasma",
on the other it contains: "/usr/share/xsessions/plasma".
I don't know where either example comes from, but the upshot is that
paths are added to XDG_DATA_DIRS and XDG_CONFIG_DIRS that don't exist.
MANDATORY_PATH is also affected I believe, maybe others.
Surely a sanity check of the generated paths is in order. Seems
pointless to add non-existent ones.
$XDG_SESSION_DESKTOP looks like a replacement for $DESKTOP_SESSION,
but is that true?
