A lot of people all over different major distributions seems to be

The problem is most probably related to glib2, which impacts on
Thunar.Users running glib2-2.44 don't have it, while those who
have glib2-2.46 installed do (including me). Downgrading is
not possible as this would require recompiling a lot of essential
packages, namely systemd amongst others.

The Fedora/Redhat folks report that the bug is already known upstream,
so let's see if there will be a fix. The bug is deeply annoying,
though, because the file manager is one of those tools being most
central in any OS.

Let's hope that the issue will be fixed soon.
