Bug#860796: appears to be linked to the lack of a running "nautilus --gapplication-service"

having investigated further, it appears that "nautilus  
--gapplication-service" needs to be running in the users session for  
desktop icons to be responsive. "/usr/bin/nautilus  
--gapplication-service" appears in the file  
/usr/share/dbus-1/services/org.freedesktop.FileManager1.service though  
does not appear to be present automatically in my user session.

I can get my icons to work by manually executing "nautilus  
--gapplication-service" through a shell or via the ALT+F2 dialogue.
