I changed: "<drawContents>no</drawContents>" to 

I don't know if that was necessary, but I did it for consistency with 
other parameters.

I also changed: "<popupShow>Nonpixel</popupShow>" to 

After making this change, window-dragging seemed to be much more 
efficient, but all my desktop icons (and the screen wallpaper) were gone.

I re-booted, and then my icons and wallpaper re-appeared, and 
window-dragging remained more efficient.

With that change, I have no problems with my Lubuntu 14.04 system, other 
than it ignoring color-customization.

The Xubuntu system on that machine remains un-usable.
