It seems like the bug is triggered as long as I can write to the file.
Everything's fine if I don't have those permissions (e.g. if I set the
file permissions to something like -r--r--r-- or the file is owned and
only writable by root). That way the widgets in the Launcher tab are
insensitive but then the dialog doesn't close unexpectedly.

I don't see the crash when entering /usr/share/applications in the svn
trunk version of Thunar, so this might already have been fixed after the
beta. Assuming that's the bug you're referring to.
