It's obvious we are not seeing the same and I wonder what makes the

Xarchiver has a bug. I've seen xarchiver using 100% of a core. But it's
confirmed by the maintainer. So I'm not worried about that.

I've made some tests myself too. Ive realized that not always freezes
using thunar (running X directly, thunar and squeeze or xarchiver) but
always it freezes thunar is involved.

Don't worry, I'm a bit tired of testing too. I can kill xarchiver from
a tty if I do a merciless and wild kill (sigkill, 9), but that doesn't
return the control of the desktop when is freezed. I must kill the X
session for that, but I don't need to restart the computer.
