            Bug ID: 14476
           Summary: Segmentation fault running Thunar as root with pkexec
    Classification: Xfce Core
           Product: Thunar
           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: Other
                OS: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: Medium
         Component: Core
          Assignee: xfce-bugs at xfce.org
          Reporter: mrpaul at posteo.de
                CC: benny at xfce.org, hjudt at xfce.org
  Target Milestone: 1.8.0

On upgrade to 1.8.0 I can no longer run thunar as root with the following

pkexec dbus-launch thunar /
pkexec thunar /

Thunar opens about half the time.  In any case as soon as I try to enter a new
directory it crashes with a segmentation fault:

    [x at xlaptop ~]$ pkexec dbus-launch thunar /

    *[DOUBLECLICK /etc]*

    (thunar:2096): GLib-GObject-CRITICAL **: 14:16:22.440: g_object_get_data:
assertion 'G_IS_OBJECT (object)' failed

    (thunar:2096): Gtk-WARNING **: 14:16:22.440: gtktreemodel.c:2495: bad row
reference, proxy has no outstanding row references
    Segmentation fault (core dumped)

I have downgraded to version 1.6.15 for now.

Incidentally the UI also changed for the worse in my opinion.  It looks like
you changed to bold fonts.  This creates much more line-spacing and means I can
now fit/see much less on screen than before.
