Control: reassign -1 nfs-common

For nfs-common people: this seems to be some kind of hang in NFS
+kerberos. It reveals itself in Thunar when the user deletes some files
(maybe a lot, maybe large, not too sure), which means files are moved to
a folder under .local/share/Trash. It's apparently not related to Thunar
but more nfs client or server. I've reassigned to nfs-common but feel
free to reassign to the correct component (kernel or maybe kerberos

It'd help if you could try to reproduce with no thunar at all. Just try
to move the same set of files to the trash folder.

I guess it's indeed NFS, related although I'm not really sure it's in
