  Well, type Ctrl-L, next Ctrl-C and you will have the location in your
clipboard, whatever pathbar mode is in use or even if no pathbar is
used.  The mouse gesture (middle click on blank space in the icon view
and move around to see the possibilities) is doing a really nice job
when no pathbar is set.

  As said in my first answer in this thread, have a look at
http://thunar.xfce.org/pwiki/ for the Tips & Tricks[1], they are really
interesting and of good help.
