This has been fixed, and Jani told me that a new snapshot package is
available for Xubuntu, so an apt-get upgrade should do the trick.

Hm, with fixed column widths, Thunar tells GtkTreeView to use exactly
the widths specified by the columns (the saved user choice). Looking at
the GtkTreeView source, it should not automatically resize the columns
then. Dunno.

You'll need to build with gconf to enable the usage of the GNOME
thumbnailers (I want to get rid of this some day, maybe with a simple
thumbnailer registry ala desktop database, but until then gconf is
required). Dunno if Xubuntu ships GConf by default.
