Bug Description

Binary package hint: thunar

The bug is systematic. Way to reproduce :
Open filezilla, connect to any distant FPT site
Open thunar
Drag a file from the distant site
Try to drop it on thunar window

As soon as the mouse goes over thunar's window, thunar crashes.

The program 'thunar' received an X Window System error.
This probably reflects a bug in the program.
The error was 'BadAtom (invalid Atom parameter)'.
  (Details: serial 5233 error_code 5 request_code 24 minor_code 0)

Thunar 1.0.1
Xubuntu Karmic
