You don't have $XDG_CONFIG_HOME set to something weird, do you?  The 
config file is (more precisely) located at $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/Thunar/volmanrc.

You can also try strace-ing the config dialog to see what's going on. 
Close the dialog, and then run (from a terminal):

strace thunar-volman --configure

Look around for open() calls that point to filenames to see if it's 
trying to open the config file, and if it's succeeding or failing.
