Hi all, it's been a quiet cycle from testing point of view so far.

We've not forgotten about thunar - so to cut a long story short you can 
try testing thunar with these patches.

    sudo apt-get build-dep thunar
    git clone git://
    cd thunar
    wget -O fix_crash.patch
    git apply fix_crash.patch
    git apply 9c6dbb1dae70.patch
    sudo make install
    thunar -q

You should now be running a git version of thunar - check thunar - help 
- about

Use it, abuse it, see if it fixes the crashes we see when 
copying/renaming files.

When you've finished testing it for us - reply to this please.

To uninstall the git version - enter the thunar folder you created above 
and run

sudo make uninstall

Thanks all


Note: if you use root thunar via pkexec you will need to edit 
/usr/share/polkit-1/actions/org.xfce.thunar.policy to point to
