non-existent temporary desktop file appears on desktop
Open, HighPublic

Description

See Launchpad bug but we have these weird temporary files appearing on the desktop, especially so on lower-powered machines due to race conditions. Upstream was quick to fix this. Impact is low, really, but ugly enough that both upstream and @tsimonq2 feel that this deserves an SRU in Disco.

Now it's just a matter of SRU'ing.

The SRU is now in the wild (well, in proposed):

libfm-qt (0.14.1-0ubuntu2.1) disco; urgency=medium

 * Don't show non-existent temporary files on the desktop (LP: #1825587).
