  Target Milestone: 1.8.0

At the Manjaro forum we have encountered a peculiarity that seems to be native
to terminals and file managers by design.

It seems to be true in the case of Thunar and xfce4-terminal as well.

The issue is simple, yet to get to the bottom of it, an in-depth discussion was
necessary. You can read the discussion about the issue here:

While not ideal, the solution we came to was to add the following custom action
command to the right-click menu in Thunar:

Run in terminal: xfce4-terminal -x %F

The request is to either add this custom action to Thunar by default out of the
box. And possibly to fix the issue in Xfce at its core.

However just adding the mentioned custom action command to the right-click menu
by default out of the box would already be a great step forward.
