Thunar bleeps when backspace or delete pressed

Bug Description

Binary package hint: thunar

Whenever I press the backspace key to browse backwards in Thunar, I hear a bleep sound. The same happens when I delete files with the delete key. I go back to the folder I was previously viewing, or delete the selected files as I wanted, but with an unwanted bleep.

When running thunar through a terminal, it doesn't output anything when this happens.

When I press the backspace key in other parts of the program it performs as expected, and only bleeps if I do something wrong. For example, in the location bar, pressing backspace does not cause a bleep unless the cursor is before the first letter, when I hear a bleep.

I don't hear a bleep if I browse back using the toolbar or delete a file using a menu, it only when I use the keyboard.

I am using thunar version 0.8.0-6ubuntu3, with XFCE on Ubuntu 7.10 on an iBook G4.

I managed to work around the delete files bleep by highlighting Delete on the Edit menu, and then pressing delete to map the delete key to that menu item. Previously this menu entry was unmapped.

According to upstream the bleep doesn't come from Thunar.
