To make adressbar and Browse Network to work, i did the following: installed samba and gvfs-backend and edited /etc/nsswitch.conf as follows (a hint from web):
# hosts:          files mdns4_minimal [NOTFOUND=return] dns
hosts: 		files dns wins my_pc_name

Go->Open Location does not open anything still. Distro should make these settings automatically, no normal user has these information.

Maybe there is a problem in the Glib  or compatility, as 
there is  the following in my .xsession-errors:

(Thunar:1081): GLib-CRITICAL **: Source ID 191671 was not found when attempting to remove it

(process:6398): GLib-CRITICAL **: g_slice_set_config: assertion 'sys_page_size == 0' failed
