[Thunar-dev] Patch for thunar drag and drop crash

Here's a little patch to prevent thunar from crashing when dragging
unhandled formats (text, panel plugins, windows from the taskswitcher
applet etc) over its fileview.
For those interested: The call to gtk_drag_get_data ultimately results
in a call to XConvertSelection which generates a BadAtom error.

Steps to reproduce:
* select text somewhere (e.g. in Mousepad)
* drag selected text over the fileview in thunar
* crash

reproducible: always

versions affected:
* trunk
* Xubuntu 9.10
(have not bothered going further back)

best regards,
