--- Comment #10 from Dave Witbrodt <dawitbro at sbcglobal.net> ---
Tonight my distribution (Debian) made an update of glib2.0 available; I changed
from Debian package libglib2.0-0 version 2.46.1-2 to version 2.46.2-1.  A quick
test revealed that I was not able to cause Thunar to crash by copying many
files to a temporary test directory and renaming all of them one at a time.

I did not test exhaustively, so the problem may still exist.  I need to get
some sleep, but I will do some serious testing in the morning to see if I can
get Thunar to crash with the new glib2.0.  I will say this -- looking at their
changelog, I see at least one commit that sounds promising:

    gtask: re-fix tasks-blocking-other-tasks

    The new "slowly add more task threads" code doesn't fully deal with
    apps that queue lots and lots of tasks which then block on tasks from
    their task threads. Fix this by bringing back the "task is blocking
    other task" check and making sure that such tasks get bumped to the
    front of the queue.


If I am wrong about the problem being fixed, I apologize for getting anyone's
hopes up.  The simple test I made just now would easily have caused Thunar to
crash and disappear before, so I thought I would mention the glib2.0 update so
that other people can confirm (or refute) that it helps them.
