Well, for one, when I log in, the desktop starts up but it is
impossible for me to start new instances of pcmanfm (it immediately
crashes, no meaningful return code).  The current version is 0.9.8-1
(fairly old, the upstream release is 0.9.9), and there hasn't been an
update for sid for quite some time. I'm on git (last updated in ~late
august), and I've had no problems whatsoever. Integration with GVFS and
authentication has also gotten a lot better.

PCManFM Releases:

0.9.9 - August 2011 - this version works fine
0.9.8 (SID) - October 2010 - this is the version that's having bugs
0.9.7 (Squeeze) - May 2010 - this version works but isn't as nice in
handling removable media.  I was using this and apt pinning until I
upgraded from source.
