I came across this bug when using the Unison file synchroniser.  I have 
been able to reproduce it reliably as follows: Simply open a directory 
with Thunar and then execute the following shell fragment inside the 
same directory:

# while true ; do touch a ; mv a b ; rm b ; done

The Thunar window will become unresponsive almost immediately.

I can confirm that the above mentioned patch from Xfce upstream does 
indeed fix the issue. The patch already seems to have been rolled out in 

I would strongly recommend applying this patch in the next stable point 
release of Debian - it has a major effect on usability of the Xfce desktop.
