I now installed xfce beta from debian unstable and there it works fine.

I know have two scripts, isomount and arcmount, defined as applications 
for ISO Images and zip files respectively, that will mount the file 
using fuse, then launch thunar on the derived mount point and unmount 
the file after this thunar instance closes:
fusermount -u $MOUNTPOINT

Works mostly great. I get completely seamless integration of virtual 
filesystems, with all the functionality of thunar.

Which brings me to my next question. Is it possible to start thunar with 
some command line options for the behaviour of this one invocation, not 
changing the usual defaults. My idea would be something like this:

thunar --sidepane=none \
        --location-selector=toolbar \
        --view=details \

meaning that I get no sidepane, a toolbar location selector, a detail 
view and the inability to go out of the directory thunar was invoked with.
