This bug can get closed now.
I didnt't have gvfs installed.
mea culpa
A little update on documentation and dependencies could make it easier for
other users who will run into problems like that to figure out what's wrong
Thunar still tells (in /usr/share/doc/html) that it needs HAL for purposes
of removable media. udisks isnt't recommended by thunar, thunar-volman,
gvfs and also gvfs-bin (but gvfs-bin isn't nessecary for thunar-volman anyway).
The README.Debian of thunar says that you need gvfs, but I didn't find it,
because I looked for that kind of information in the docs of thunar-volman,
because this was the package I had trouble with; so thunar-volman could maybe
use a little Readme.Debian as well. Since Thunar can do it's job well without
gvfs, but thunar-volman can't do anything at all without it, it might not be
the worst idea to add it as "recommends" or hard dependency to thunar-volman,
and even maybe lower it for Thunar to "suggests".
