My Documents and Downloads are not, nor should be, separate devices.

drag'n'drop will "copy" if the files move from a different mount point, say /home/username/Documents and /home/username/Downloads are different mount points, dragging a file from Downloads to Documents will copy it. else while moving inside the same mount point it will "move" the file, say you move a file from /home/username to /home/username/Desktop, and both are in the same mount point, then it will move it.

Not regarding to the topic, I guess you misunderstand what I tried to
point out, or I misunderstand you.

Regarding to the way you quote/reply, IOW "Text Over, Fullquote Under",
you seem to be a little bit freakish.

Joking aside.

I didn't test it, but I believe you, so if drag and drop on the Desktop
should behave different with Thunar running or not running, than it is a
bug or a feature done by somebody with a bizarre worldview.

Does it behave also different, if Firefox is running ;) and should users
keep in mind how drag and drop for the desktop does behave assumed
Thunar is opened, Firefox is opened or Evolution is running ;)?
