I've tried this, but to no avail.
Moreover, this is definitely a bug in Thunar's behaviour!!
I hope Thunar has a different behaviour with Xfce 4.6 !?!

It's even worse than what I described before: if I do not kill
Thunar soon enough after its lock up, my whole system grinds
to a halt; keyboard/mouse stop, screen is frozen, no remote
login possible....I can only power off and on again.

All this happens using Thunar as a regular user!!!

I've checked output to /var/log/messages and /var/log/Xorg.0.log
while Thunar screws my system, but nothing appears there.

Thunar is really doing something awefully bad here.
