            Bug ID: 15871
           Summary: Deleting many files causes Thunar to hang
    Classification: Xfce Core
           Product: Thunar
           Version: 1.8.9
          Hardware: PC (x86_64)
                OS: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: critical
          Priority: Medium
         Component: General
          Assignee: xfce-bugs at xfce.org
          Reporter: greob at yahoo.com.sg
  Target Milestone: unspecified

requests to gvfsd-trash within a short amount of time (
