Yes, I shouldn't use this function of Thunar, neither
should any other user on this linux system....to prevent
the OS to come to a grinding halt.....!?!?!

But this is not the way Thunar should behave and since this
is a "-dev" list, I reported my experience.... I'd thought
I found a serious bug here!

Actually, I wonder how this is possible in the first place.
How can Thunar as a regular user application be able to cripple
the whole OS? Even if a user application would want to, the
OS should prevent something like to happen.
Nevertheless, it happens.....
