Comment 27 for bug 1512120

I experienced the renaming crash in Thunar with a new installation of
Xubuntu 15.10. I changed the group permissions (right click - properties
- permissions) to 'read and write'. The fault seems to have disappeared
for the moment. If it persists it's an easy fix.

No wait, it only works for folders not for single files!! However, pdf
files in root of documents can now be be renamed without crashing.

I am convinced that this has something to do with permissions in general
as applied from Thunar root - preferences - advanced - permissions
