It's indeed a bug in GtkTreeModelFilter in GTK+ 2.10 (see my last
comment on the bug report). Unfortunately, there's not much we can do in
Thunar to work-around that bug (except bookkeeping of all allocated tree
nodes and validating them in unref_node(), but that'd be a real pain and
an immense overhead). So GTK+ 2.10 users will have to use the shortcuts
pane for now and wait for the GTK+ people to fix the problem.
