I would like to point out — in case you don't already know — that the
issue addressed in this patch is not specific to thunar.  It also shows
up in MATE ( and is caused by glib itself
looking for gio-launch-desktop in $PATH.  More importantly, it has
already been fixed on in commit 0bcc1b14fc3e2382406b97577c56e2292b96b8d4
on core-updates (which is why the aforementioned bug has been closed).
