  xdg-open fails to recognize xfce 4.12

Status in xdg-utils package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Xubuntu 15.04
  xfce 4.12
  xdg-utils 1.1.0~rc1-2ubuntu10

  I have firefox and chrome installed. Firefox is defined as default in
  xfce settings. When calling a URL with xdg-open it starts chrome.

  A quick look in /usr/bin/xdg-open reveals line 309 in function

  elif xprop -root _DT_SAVE_MODE 2> /dev/null | grep ' = \"xfce4\"$'
  >/dev/null 2>&1; then DE=xfce;

  This doesn't seem to work anymore.
