[Pkg-xfce-devel] Bug#523631: thunar: Not always possible to "Open Terminal Here"

Package: thunar
Version: 0.9.0-10
Severity: normal

If the number of files in a directory is enough to cover the available
vertical space, I am not able to get the correct context menu with the
"Open Terminal Here" option. Instead I get the context menu that is
appropriate for single file operations, which does not contain this

I think that it should not be neccesary to change to "Icon View" and back in
order to use the "Open Terminal Here" function of Thunar. I think there are
other context menu options that are also difficult to get access to in
the same way (at least Paste and Create Folder)

Best regards
Torquil Sørensen
