I just tried to open the same rar password protected archive with
squeeze and xarchiver in thunar. Squeeze just show a busy cursor than
crash with a segfault message in /var/log/kern.log without freezing
the desktop, xarchiver freezes the whole desktop with no error message
I then tried to open the same rar archive from a xfce4-terminal
window, squeeze crashed with a segfault error message and xarchiver
has completely frozen without freezing the entire desktop (this
time...). So my guess is that the bug with squeeze is completely
Then I copied /usr/share/applications/xarchiver.desktop on the desktop
and launched xarchiver from there to open the same rar password
protected archive and xarchiver freezes the desktop again. I tried the
same with a launcher on xfce4-panel and with xfce4-appfinder and of
course, the desktop freezes again.
So, is it a bug on thunar, xfdesktop4, xfce4-panel, xfce4-appfinder,
xfce4-terminal or xarchiver?
Please don't take it personal. I am only a user who tries to
investigate because I do not understand how this could be a bug of
thunar itself. And I'll stop my tests here, I'm a little tired to
restart my computer every time because it is impossible to kill
xarchiver or rar from a TTY.
