What makes you think that ?
If some other application wants to open just the containing folder, why than
the full file path is passed as argument, instead of the containing folder path
To just hang and consume 100% CPU does not look very "right" for me. So IMO
thunar does it right.
If other file-managers cannot handle a path up to the file, they should either
throw an error, or just open the parent folder. But that's not a thunar prolem
and not an exo problem.

You dont have to use exo for that purpose. You as well can use the API of
( thunar just got support for it in master )
