Package: thunar
Version: 1.6.3-1
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

So, I login into my xfce-session and plug in a usb-hdd. *poof* thunar
opens (as expected) with an icon-set which is different from the one i
set in the settings-dialog (which was not expected) and missing almost
all file&directory icons.

So, I use it and unmount the usb-drive, and everything is ok, but the
icon stuff.

Now, a week ago I found how to fix the weird icon thing: I executed
'thunar --quit'. If I startet thunar after that, the icons are from
the set I configured and they are /there/. BUT: Now thunar doesn't
open anymore when I connect an usb-hdd. (which nonetheless seems to
get mounted. I just cannot see that.)

So what I think is, that there is a thunar spawned at session start
but there's some config daemon not started in the session yet or so,
and thus thunar doesn't get the icons right, but connects to
udisks. When I restart thunar to reload the icon stuff, it doesn't
connect to udisks again.

keep up the good work
