Hello :-)

Two Thunar suggestions.

Firstly about directory symlinks.  When one is opened in Thunar, the 
displayed path is for the symlink.  AFor example, if user c has a 
/home/c/Templates symlink to /home/c/d/Templates, when the user clicks 
on /home/c/Templates, Thunar displays /home/c/Templatesboth by the 
clickable directory buttons and in the Ctrl+L window.  It would be nice 
to be able to configure Thunar to instead display the actual path 
(/home/c/d/Templates) or have a GUI button to change mode.  This is 
equivalent to the difference between what bash displays using pwd and 
using pwd with the -P option.

Secondly, it would be nice if the file and directory Properties window 
width could be configured or maybe the window could adapt to the file or 
directory name length (up to a sane/configurable maximum).
