[Thunar-dev] Thunar shows wrong size

I notice that Thunar list the size as x MB or GB, but actually is is
MiB and GiB that are shown. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gibibyte

As all harddisk manufacturers uses kB=1000 bytes, GB= 10^9 bytes etc...
it would make sense to show file sizes in base 10 and not base 2.

Is there a way to change this calculation or can it be implemented?

Keep up the excellent work
