xfdesktop allows the user to drag (for example) the 'File System' icon
from the thunar path bar to the desktop, or to a folder icon on the
desktop, if for some reason they want to make a symlink to '/'.
However, thunar-vfs seems to explicitly disallow this, and throws a
The culprit seems to be line 258 of thunar-vfs-io-ops.c, in
_thunar_vfs_return_val_if_fail (!thunar_vfs_path_is_root (source_path),
Is there any reason for this? I can easily do "ln -s / ~/file-system"
from a terminal; why doesn't thunar-vfs allow it?
