xfce4-places-plugin does not use the preferred file manager but uses thunar which is hard coded.
How to reproduce the bug:
Install xfce4-places-plugin and add the plug-in to the xfce panel.
Run exo-preferred-applications and set the file manager to Nautilus.
Run "exo-open --launch FileManager" and check that it opens Nautilus.
Now click on the xfce-places-plugin on your panel and click the item called "Desktop".
It should start Nautilus but it starts Thunar.
This bug is fixed by upstream in the 1.4 release.
See bug: https://bugzilla.xfce.org/show_bug.cgi?id=8085
I have applied the upstream patch  to xfce4-places-plugin-1.3.0-1+b1 from debian testing and it fixes the bug.
I'm using Wheezy with the 3.2.0-4-686-pae kernel.
