[Pkg-xfce-devel] Bug#633771: thunar: useless error when ejecting removable media

Package: thunar
Version: 1.2.2-1
Severity: minor

Sometimes when I eject [umount] an SDHC card from the Thunar, a useless but
inconvenient error dialog appears.

To produce the problem, I followed this routine:
Insert an SDHC card into a USB card reader.
Mount it by clicking its entry in the Thunar Shortcuts (side) Pane.
Browse some of the folders in the [camera] card.
Click the Eject button next to the drive label in the Thunar Shortcuts side

The problem is erratic, and does not occur every time. I got the impression
that browsing the files, selecting them, and opening them might increase the
rate of occurrence, but it doesn't seem tangibly related. To reproduce the bug,
I had to follow the routine several times, partially removing and re-inserting
the SDHC card each time to get Thunar to recognize it.
When it does occur, the error is a dialog message-box with no frame title, a
body heading of 'Failed to open directory "CANON_DC".' above the text
"Permission denied.", followed by a "[x]Close" button.

It seems harmless but annoying.
