Comment #5 by Tony MOREHEN:

It appears to be an issue with xfwm4 version 4.16.1 (maybe 4.16.0?).  It no longer seems to support the _NET_SHOWING_DESKTOP hint.

As a result, the call to X11.GetWindowProperty(X11.RootWindow, Atom["_NET_SHOWING_DESKTOP"]) returns null causing X11.ShowDesktop_Read() to raise the "not an object" error. Note X11.ShowDesktop_Write() silently fails.

Tony MOREHEN changed the state of the bug to: Upstream.
