Package: thunar
Version: 1.6.3-1
Followup-For: Bug #575385

Dear Maintainer,

Just chiming in, that I never liked this behaviour either.  I execute scripts
from the terminal, sometimes via Thunar's `custom actions' right-click menu,
but never, *ever* want to run them from the file browser.  IMHO, Thunar should
only try to execute *.desktop files by default, and if the user really wants to
execute, rather than open an executable file for editing, they should be able
to do so via a right-click menu, but never by default.

But that's not the bug I came to report, just got distracted.

Thank you,
