Package: thunar
Version: 1.6.10-4
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

  I have a FUSE network file system driver, google-drive-ocamlfuse, installed. Thunar hangs on startup when the computer is offline. After a very long time, the message "Error when getting information for file 'google-drive': Device or resource busy." appears. This message window, itself, is Not responding. Sometimes, after considerable time, this dialog is dismissable and thunar usable.
In Thunar's output, there is "Error creating proxy: Error calling StartServiceByName for org.gtk.vfs.UDisks2VolumeMonitor: Timeout was reached (g-io-error-quark, 24)".
Obviously, some fault is to be placed on google-drive-ocamlfuse for not failing gracefully when there is no network (and a corresponding bug report will be placed with that team), but a misbehaving file system mount should not render Thunar unusable.
