Since using 12.10 I have noticed two bugs with thunar, luckily I have 
been able to workaround them for the time being:

1) Duplicate thunar entries[0]:
Create a script with lines as follows (as mentioned here[1]):
xfconf-query -c xfce4-desktop -p /desktop-icons/style -s 1
xfconf-query -c xfce4-desktop -p /desktop-icons/style -s 2

Set the script to start automatically under Xfce Settings 
Manager>Session and Startup>Application Autostart

2) Thunar takes ages to start after bootup:
Edit /usr/share/gvfs/mounts/network.mount, change Automount to false/./

Hope this is of some use
