This sounds as if it tries to execure that desktop file, which doesn't
make much sense IMHO.

On my system:

$ ps aux | grep Thunar
tkeitel   2902  0.0  0.8  61936  4180 ?        Sl    2007   0:36 Thunar
--sm-client-id 110a010068000118545497100000281200002 --daemon

This is a background process, running as a deamon. It is started when
the Xfce session is created, so it is normal.
