Thunar, detailed list view and your mouse

Hello,

I have XFCE 4.10 with Thunar 1.6.3, all downloaded as packages from the Arch Linux repository.

I want to use the "Detailed List" view at Thunar, but I am having this nuisance that I don't know if its a bug or not:

When viewing items in "Detailed List" view, I cannot mass select items by trying to draw a box with my mouse left click, when the place that i start clicking is simply white space below the files' list. The only way to mass select with my mouse, is to actually put the cursor above a file title and start to create the box from there. This makes the usage confusing, to me, since I am not really used in doing that. However, while viewing as "Icons" or "Compact List", the problem does not exist.

Is this expected behavior, or a bug?

If it is expected behavior, can we expect it to change, since it is kind of weird?

thanks


I accidentally posted this message at "Installation" instead of "Desktop". Should I post again, or will someone move it?

I am also running 4.10 and Thunar 1.6.3 and have noticed the same behavior when I try to do it with my cursor in the name column, as I normally do. I have found a workaround by enlarging the screen and doing the mass selecting out near the right margin.  Not pretty. but it works for me.
