Which path format are you entering for Thunar to return you this

I have no problem (Thunar 1.6.6) with this format:

Using a SSL key based password-less authentication.
For the first connection I had to specify the user, even though it is
specified in ~/.ssh/config.

There might be some clues in /var/log/auth.log, server side.
