            Bug ID: 13623
           Summary: Thunar writes broken XML declaratation into uca.xml
    Classification: Xfce Core
           Product: Thunar
           Version: 1.6.11
          Hardware: PC (x86_64)
                OS: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: Medium
         Component: Core
          Assignee: xfce-bugs at xfce.org
          Reporter: nobodyinperson at gmx.de
        QA Contact: nick at xfce.org
                CC: benny at xfce.org, hjudt at xfce.org
  Target Milestone: 1.8.0

Thunar keeps writing a broken XML declaration into the user uca.xml custom
actions file. According to https://www.w3.org/TR/xml/#NT-XMLDecl, the
version='1.0' should be the first thing after the <?xml, not the

Steps to reproduce:

1) delete your custom actions file (rm ~/.config/Thunar/uca.xml)
2) Open Thunar, go to Edit -> Custom Actions and double click any of the
pre-defined actions or create a new one, then click OK.
3) now check the newly created uca.xml XML declaration (head -1
~/.config/Thunar/uca.xml). It says:

<?xml encoding="UTF-8" version="1.0"?>

This broken XML declaration may prevent some XML parsers from correctly parsing
the uca.xml file.

I'm on Xubuntu 16.04.
