Package: thunar
Version: 1.6.3-1
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

Thunar will hang if an SFTP session is terminated uncleanly. The solution is to kill the SSH proces manually.

To reproduce, connect to a remote server via SFTP. After successfully
logging in, disable your network adaptor. Once done, now attempt to close
the connection by pressing the eject symbol next to the SFTP "mount" icon. 

If you press the close icon on the window, then you are given the option
to terminate Thunar, however this does not terminate the connection

Thunar will hang until the SSH process is killed. Waiting several
minutes doesn't seem to cause any timeout or user feedback to trigger.

Expected behaviour is that thunar will offer to kill the SSH session
after some time, and that in the interim, some information about an
upcoming timemout will be displayed to the user.
