[Pkg-xfce-devel] Bug#583326: thunar: right-clicking a file selects it but does not move keyboard focus and can result in data loss

This bug is still present and additionally results in a *nasty* usability
bug: accidentially deleting the parent folder.

- select a directory in the tree pane,
- in the right window click a file with the right mouse button, to, e.g add
it to an archive
- after the context menu has closed press the delete key to, presumeably,
remove the now archived file
--> the whole parent folder of the file is removed

Even though this takes away some functionality, please inhibit the delete
key for the tree-side-pane, at least when there is some sort of selection
in the right folder window. There is no way to assert the current keyboard
