More detailed findings described in awesome issue #598

Finally I could identify the **patterns**:

X11:  creating 4 separate X11 screens

XFCE: creating 2 x 2 "Workspaces"

C) _Thunar_ spawns the apps (...) from file context
- onto that (wrong) X11 screen where (after starting X env) 
  the _last_ instance of Dolphin had been started
- (regardless if this _last_ instance has been closed in between)
- onto the currently active "Workspace"

Although confirmed as working stable multiple times,
unfortunately, Elv13 stated that nobody @ Awesome would care about
independent X11 screens ("ZaphoMode") any more;
c.f. ff.

No sign of interest stated by leading upstream (=XFCE) developers.

f really nobody cares besides me,
I do not mind to close as "WONTFIX".
