            Bug ID: 12403
           Summary: Weird history behaviour when opening directory in new
    Classification: Xfce
           Product: Thunar
           Version: 1.6.10
          Hardware: PC (x86_64)
                OS: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: Medium
         Component: general

When opening a directory in a new tab, the history of the previous tab is
copied into the new one, but the newly opened directory is not stored in the

For example:
* Navigate to root ('File System')
* Navigate to the 'usr' directory
* Navigate to the 'share' directory

The top two entries should now say 'usr' and 'File System'.

* Right click the xfce4 directory and click on 'Open in New Tab'

Note that this new tab has the same history as the old one.

* Navigate to the 'applications' directory

Note that the 'share' directory has now been added to the history, but the
'xfce4' directory has not.  When you use the back button at this point, you
will indeed end up in /usr/share and not in /usr/share/xfce4.

This odd behaviour does not occur when opening a directory in a new *window*.

Expected behaviour:
* Opening a directory in a new tab should give the new tab a fresh history, as
in web browsers with tabs.
* The directory that is opened in the new tab should be recorded in the history
of that new tab.

Version info:
I am using version 1.6.10-2 on amd64, as provided by packages of Debian
