Package: thunar
Version: 1.6.10-4
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

I have several photos that I have rotated in Shotwell and then saved the
JPEG to some other directory.  Xfce (Thunar, xfdesktop4) shows the
thumbnail in its original orientation (unrotated).  But if I delete the
thumbnail and then view the directory in MATE or GNOME (i.e., using Caja
or Nautilus), the thumbnail is shown rotated.  If I open the jpeg, the
image is shown rotated, so I view the unrotated thumbnail as a bug.

I can't tell if this is a problem with Xfce or whatever thumbnailer
Xfce uses (tumbler?); please reassign if appropriate.

I see the problem in both Jessie and Stretch.

I will attach a sample file.
