Hi Frank,

Having resolved the same problem as you described at the mailinglist in
july, I thought I would let you know:

The files in the /usr/share/applications/ directory have MIME-type
describers, which tell gnome that this applications has to be launched.
The thunar files are at the bottom, far below the Nautilus-files.

If you do grep on the commandline, like 'grep x-directory *' in the
/usr/share/applications/ directory, you will see that both Nautilus and
Thunar are associated. Because I removed thunar from my system (gnome
rocks), I simply removed the Thunar* files in the dir.

This worked for me!
