I can not ask the developers of my distribution. I am using LFS. I have
installed the gvfs-1.6.6 and can browse the network in the Thunar.

For example, consider the function g_volume_mount_finish:

Here http://git.gnome.org/browse/glib/tree/gio/gvolume.c#n373 :

iface = G_VOLUME_GET_IFACE (volume);
return (* iface->mount_finish) (volume, result, error);

When working on Linux iface->mount_finish calls g_unix_volume_mount_finish.
Defined here:


Consider the function g_unix_volume_mount_finish:


static gboolean
g_unix_volume_mount_finish (GVolume        *volume,
                            GAsyncResult  *result,
                            GError       **error)
  return TRUE;

Always return TRUE.

I tried a small patch (attached) for the glib. With this patch automounting
in thunar-volman works.

Hmm... I see my removable devices in the file selection dialog in Midori.
