            Bug ID: 16857
           Summary: XFCE open dialog: Do not overwrite Location field
                    after user input
    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: e.kleinmentink at zonnet.nl
  Target Milestone: 1.8.13

I am not sure if this is part of Thunar. I am using SMPlayer with is using the
native file dialogs.
Playing files over a (slower) network.

The dialog is starting in phases:
1: Open screen with all fields empty
2: Dialog is updating the bread-crumb menu with the folder, the "Location"
field still empty
3: The "Location" field is unlocked and the user can enter stuff
4: The screen is updated. The "Location" field is updated with current playing
item and the file is also "selected" in the file pane.

Usually my clipboard contains the complete path to a file. I open the dialog.
I paste (ctlr-v) the path and press enter. Now there is some timing issue. In
some cases the location is overwritten by info about the current file (by step
So, i like to propose a little change. If the location is modified by the user
then do not update the "Location" field.
