Well, I'm not sure what your problem is specifically. Using Thunar, I 
can set the execute bit on Samba shares that I have mounted with 
smbmount. Or with fusesmb.

In any case, the best way to request a feature is to file a request with 
the Xfce bugtracker <>. Second best would be to 
post your request to the Thunar list.
