    It's a known problem:
    http://bugzilla.opensuse.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1087352

    A fix is on the way, and actually released already for Leap 15.0. (TBH I'm actually surprised that it would not be in TW yet...)

    But, if you modify the application entries yourself using the way you explain, the changes will be saved to your user's home directory and an update will not affect them.

    I just had a look, and the fix is in Tumbleweed already since snapshot 20180517 (released on Sat. May 19th):
    ==== yast2-packager ====
    Version update (4.0.60 -> 4.0.62)
    - Fixed argument handling in the .desktop file for the
    "Install/Remove Software" item
    (bsc#1087352)
    - Properly process paths containing spaces or special shell
    characters
    - 4.0.62
    - Adapted /dev cleanup at upgrade to work properly with the
    registration rollback (bsc#1089643)
    - 4.0.61
    https://lists.opensuse.org/opensuse-.../msg00240.html

    So the described workaround should no longer be necessary (on an up-to-date TW installation).

    my install was using
    Code:
    openSUSE-Tumbleweed-NET-x86_64-Snapshot20180525-Media.iso
    literally 1h before this post

    I’m pretty sure “NET” means network install.

    You would be correct. Thus, the reason why.

    The net install should pick up the latest and since the end of the command line shown in your item 8 matches the end of the related line in the “fix” it looks like you have the fix but it doesn’t work for you

    According to the .desktop file specifications, %F is supposed to be replaced by the desktop environment with the list of selected files (can be empty).

    A number of special field codes have been defined which will be expanded by the file manager or program launcher when encountered in the command line. Field codes consist of the percentage character ("%") followed by an alpha character. Literal percentage characters must be escaped as%%. Deprecated field codes should be removed from the command line and ignored. Field codes are expanded only once, the string that is used to replace the field code should not be checked for field codes itself.
    ...
    %F A list of files. Use for apps that can open several local files at once. Each file is passed as a separate argument to the executable program.
    ...
    ( https://specifications.freedesktop.o...t/ar01s07.html )

    So having the %F there is *not* a bug.
    The bug was that it was put inside of quotes, which is not allowed. And that has been fixed.

    If XFCE does not support %F at all (I cannot tell as I don't use it nor have it installed), it is a bug in XFCE though.
    But you likely would have problems to start a lot of other applications as well in that case.
