You forgot to update the icon cache after installing the
thunar-archive-plugin or your XDG_DATA_DIRS is messed up (which is most
probably the cause as our's automatically update the icon
cache). It may also be caused by your icon theme settings.

In either case, make sure tap-add.png/tap-extract.png is installed
properly into the hicolor theme and the icon cache for the hicolor theme
is updated (-> gtk-update-icon-cache). Then make sure your icon theme
inherits hicolor.

If it still doesn't work, rebuild Thunar with --enable-debug=minimum
( flag), which disables debugging in Thunar (and
thereby the crash), and try to fix your system.
