Since quite some programs did segfault, I don't think thunar is the
right place for that. I'm not sure which is the correct one, especially
since the various segfaults are nearly all concurrent and in various
place (not just one lib). I'd look at hardware/ram defect, something
like that, but I'm not sure.

In any case, it's definitely not Thunar. I'm reassigning to Xfce for
now, but if you can't reproduce there's no way we can do anything.
