[Thunar-dev] Thunar fails to launch Gvim for gzipped files properly

Hello everyone.

Since (G)vim is able to directly view the content of gzipped files I really
often use that feature. However, Thunar does not seem to properly launch Gvim. I
only get the following errors:

> <oc/qt3-qtconfig/changelog.Debian.gz" [noeol][konvertiert] 107L, 34513C
> Fehler beim Ausführen von "function gzip#read":
> Zeile   31:
> Error: Could not read uncompressed file
> Betätigen Sie die EINGABETASTE oder geben Sie einen Befehl ein
(Sorry, no way to set locale C here, but you should get the idea.)

But launching Gvim with the filename as argument via command line works just
fine. According to my ~/.local/share/applications/gvim.desktop file the program
is launched via "gvim -pf %U". Something wrong about the "%U"?

Regards, Mathias
