Package: thunar
Version: 1.6.11-1
Severity: important

Dear Maintainer,

   * What led up to the situation?
        Repeatedly, I was working in another window and came back to the file
manager to do something different when
        I found the window to be totally non-responsive. A couple of times it
froze the machine completely so it
        did not respond to keystrokes at all.
        I noticed that it only happened when I left it showing the main folder
I am working in, which has 4,597 items
        currently according to ls * | wc -l.
        Finally I switched to PCManFM and it does not seem to have these
