Hello everybody !

I'm following thunar-svn since a month, and regularly compile it with no 
   problems. But with rev. 17374 (libexo and thunar), i haven't got the 
thumbnails for my pics in icon-view...
I have a ~/.thumbnails/normal/ with 1080 thumbs and a 
~/.thumbnails/large/ with +2900 thumbs, both created with gqview... and 
Thunar shows me nothing. I tried to clean the cache and tell gqview to 
create the thumbs for a specific dir, but Thunar stills shows nothing in 
the dir.
Am i missing something ? (I also have the .debs for Thunar and libexo, 
it may conflicts ?)

Thanks for any help..

Off-topic : i like the name 'Thunar'... when the project is released, i 
think it'll be a good idea to keep this name, but it's only my opinion.

Ps: i think i've noticed a bug : in detailed list-view, the resizing of 
columns is /strange/. It doesn't follow the natural direction i'd like 
to move the separator between columns. (e.g, if you take the right-sep 
of a column and drag to the right, it moves the left-sep of the columnto 
the left) I don't know if it's gtk2-specific o thunar-implem-specific, 
but at the first look i find it weird.
