--- Comment #12 from Reuben Green <reubengreen73 at gmail.com> ---
So to get the dialog to appear twice my setup is as follows: I have two ext4
partitions on my disk, with a directory that I own on each (specifically, one
partition is my root file system and the directory I'm using there is
/var/www/html, the other partition is mounted on /home and the directory I'm
using there is just a subdirectory of my home directory). In both directories I
create an empty file called testfile, then I cut the testfile from one
directory (in particular, from the directory under my home directory) and paste
in into the other directory. When I do this, I get two confirmation dialogs one
after the other.

Yes, I see the value of the thunar copy+delete fallback now. I'll make a patch
using the extra member and extra parameter method. I feel that the code in
thunar-transfer-job.c could be refactored somewhat to reduce the complexity,
but I think that would take rather more experience than I have at the moment,
so maybe that's an idea for the future.
