New laptop running xfce4.8, thunar version V1.2.1.
Noticed two bugs when copying files over from my old laptop to my new one over samba with old laptop drives mounted in /mnt/drivename:
1. When copying entire folders with many hundreds of files, thunar just crashes,
2. When viewing files via a sym-link, thunar seems to cache old values, it does not report the actual files sizes.
I got around all of these issues by using xfe...its doesn't crash and reports the correct values of files over sym-links.
