OT: Any suggestions for good gtk-based file managers?

Hello, everyone. I realize that this only tangentially related to Xfce,
but I've come to trust the judgement of the "regulars" who post here.
The more I use gtk-based applications, the more I favor them over their
Qt/KDE counterparts. They just run better, work better, and move faster
in Xfce. My one KDE holdout is Konqueror (in file manager mode)-- I
haven't found another file manager with the features I need. My problem
is that Konq's begun doing some weird things; segfaulting a lot, and
spewing a boatload of error and warning messages into whatever consoles
I may happen to have open. I'd like to find a gtk work-alike, if such a
Nautilus isn't an option for me at this time: it has a bad habit of
trashing my desktop; while I've read posts related to that very problem
in this list, I'm just not savvy enough a user to fix it. xffm is nice
when I need to do something in a hurry, but it just doesn't have all the
features I need (which is hardly Olivier's fault :) ). If anyone's aware
of a gtk-based file manager that's relatively feature-rich,
Xfce-friendly, and works a lot like Konqueror (but better), I'd be
delighted to learn of it.
Thanks very much in advance.
