Some GNOME modules didn't switched to xdg-user-dirs and they are using a

Examples: - bug-buddy - gnome-screenshot

Both program testy to preset $HOME/Desktop as directory to save shots or
bug report details; if you switched to xdg-user-dirs and you no longer
have $HOME/Desktop (i.e. you are not using English as your language),
the GtkFileChooserButton shows an error message related to missing

Are bug-buddy and gnome-screenshot the only modules that needs to be
updated? Could someone review proposed patches?

Just to point out the obvious: The best way of supporting xdg-user-dirs
in gnome apps is to simply use g_get_user_special_dir() that is being
introduced in GLib 2.14.
