Thunar sometimes (without any specific reason) closes and all open sessions disappear.
In dmesg it is visible that Thunar crashes with an segfault, see below.

Additional info:
* package version(s)
extra/thunar 1.6.3-1 (xfce4)
extra/xfwm4 4.10.1-1 (xfce4)
core/glib2 2.40.0-1
core/glibc 2.19-5 (base)

* config and/or log files etc.
From dmesg:
[58269.530279] Thunar[742]: segfault at 378e0c0 ip 00007f2d31f19017 sp 00007fffdf0279b0 error 4 in[7f2d31eb5000+105000]

Do you have the latest version of gtk2 (2.24.24-1) installed?.
Comment by indianahorst (indianahorst) - Sunday, 06 July 2014, 11:15 GMT
$ pacman -Qs gtk2
local/gtk2 2.24.24-1
GTK+ is a multi-platform toolkit (v2)

Since a few days I additionaly get segfaults from "gmain", which are also crashing Thunar:

[218900.210778] gmain[8008]: segfault at d0ba03f ip 00007fa7577b9017 sp 00007fa74bc659a0 error 4 in[7fa757755000+105000]

Here somebody had a similar problem:

Can you please fix this problem? It is really annoying when your filemanager crashes every hour...

Same issue here, with not only Thunar but Caja as well. This is also causing MATE's desktop to repeatedly die.

Thunar has been very stable for me over the last couple of years, though these crashes might have been related to (un)mounting USB flash drives (which I don't use).

If this is still an issue and you can get a useful backtrace (would need debug builds of Thunar and GTK2), please file a new bug. [1]
