That's not my experience. When launched standalone, say using xfrun4,
xarchiver fails with an error message and I can easely close it. The
same happens when launched from pcmanfm.

Launched from a terminal xarchiver misbehaves. It's a bug and it's
reported (#633598). Xarchive freezes, but the desktop is still

When launched from thunar instead I can't close anything. All I can do
is to move the mouse pointer around the screen, change to a VT or
terminate the session. Nothing more. That's what makes me think that is
thunar who freeze the desktop.
