I believe I did the same thing you did....  These are the steps I took. 

1.  Login to a xfce session
2.  mv .config to config
3.  Logout
4.  Login to a xfce session
5.  Dialog pops up and I pick "default".
6.  Logout
7.  Login to a GNOME session.  (don't know what "classic gnome" is)
8.  Logout
9.  Login to a xfce session   ....  and I should see a problem?

I don't see any problems.... I doing what you're doing to try and duplicate
the problem?

Bringing up problems with Fedora on this list are never OT.  But, it is suggested
that you keep to one problem per message/thread to avoid having things get mixed up
or confused.
