It's a shame that a bug which could cause someone to run an entirely
different program to the one they click on isn't deemed critical enough
to merit a fix in the released branch of code.

I was under the impression 4.2 was going to be at latest September.

I'll have to try to backport your fix to xfce_4_0 or release with what
could potentially be a security bug[1]

Is there any way I can change your mind?  If not can you point me at the
specific revisions of files in which you fixed this in CVS HEAD please?


[0] Shush, stop laughing.
[1] Whilst I doubt anyone is really stupid enough to run any GUI file
    manager as root I am continually impressed by users' abilities to
    get themselves in all sorts of trouble.
