well, i already understood that, but i pretty much doubt that this information is interpreted by users and thus, from a usability point of view, i disagree on the use of them in general, but it's your work and you decide how you would like to have it appear.

maybe this might be something where some people might put their ideas on into emails to this or thunar's mailing list. i'm just noticing that opera for example uses those dots quite inconsistent in my personal opinon.

thought for the user it might be the easiest way to understand what pango might do for him

yes, they are quite well done now, one more thing: don't you want to replace the file name string in "Copy file %s"  to »%s« as you do with filenames and directories in general (and for those moving, linking, ... messages, too)? 
i'd rather do that both for consistency and readability. again your choice.
