Package: thunar
Version: 1.0.1-3
Severity: normal

I recently experienced a strange system crash. Appologies if this is the wrong 
place to report the bug, but I'm not sure how to interpret what went wrong 
where. Here is the portion of /var/log/messages before the crash:

To the best of my recollection I pressed <windows key><h> to open Hamster at
which point things soon froze and I got a black screen with a flashing

Thanks for any advice getting this bug to the right place if it's misplaced.
