Ah, well... Now with the FC4 dbus package version 0.33 installed, I get 
the following after removing the "--daemon" parameter.

"Error: Process /usr/bin/Thunar exited with status 127"

With 0.34 the preferences dialog pops up, but also a Thunar window 
(which is why I guess the daemon parameter is passed).
So, if people on FC4 stick with the officially provided packages, the 
fm_plugin will most likely not work. Maybe it would be good to have a 
solution for this, although I can understand that you're not keen on 
creating work-arounds for specific distributions.

Best,   Nick.
