1. xfdesktop can do this, but in a different way. Select one icon,
press shift and select another. Voila.
2. Thunar doesn't do the desktop icons (yet). xfdesktop itself does them.
3. pcmanfm questions are best redirected to the pcmanfm people...

You may of course file a bug report about lassooing (which it is
usually called), though, if there isn't one already.
