I've had this same issue (PROBLEMCHYLD and laprjns, et al) and since allend and some other don't, seems to be a wacky config issue/bug. It's never bothered me enough to comment. I have reproduced this issue on 3 clean Slackware installs: qemu VMs (46 and 32), a laptop (32). My main box (64 with multlib) has been afflicted with this since 14.0 at least. PROBLEMCHYLD work around fixes the erroneous file system tree icon back to the network icon, but it does tend to come back after re-boot.

As I have suggested above try to upgrade to Thunar 1.6.3. This version served me well both for browsing local and network files. I have even used this version to log into Huawei via ftp protocol; no need to use filezila anymore. Just try it.

Hope that helps.

I have tried your suggestion and the bug still remains. Thanks for your feedback as it was worth a shot. I use the workaround until me or someone else finds a fix. I also believe it is Not an user settings issue. None of our systems are configured the same, nor are we using the same version 64/32 bit (OS) etc... Thanks to the guys who have shown proof of the bug as well as trying to help us find a solution. When I get some downtime, I'll further research the isssue. Thanks again.

I have found the fix!!!!!!!

The culprit is in gvfs.SlackBuild. Remove the line, compile and install. Enjoy your Tree view
Code:
sed -i -e "s/AutoMount=true/AutoMount=false/g" $PKG/usr/share/gvfs/mounts/network.mount
P.S

To the non-believers, I have been dealing with computers almost 20 yrs. I know how to spot a bug when I see one, sometimes fix them as well. Please don't doubt what I'm capable of because you have no idea. Have a nice day.

If that is the fix (don't know since I don't use Thunar and thus haven't experience the bug), you don't need to recompile and reinstall the program just to get that change. You can either directly edit /usr/share/gvfs/mounts/network.mount and change AutoMount to true, or run the below sed command to do it more automatically.

Code:
sed -i "s|\(AutoMount=\)false|\1true|" /usr/share/gvfs/mounts/network.mount

I can confirm, your method is better/smoother than mines. Thanks for an alternative fix.

Well f...udge. why didn't i think of that? Getting senile or only 37-odd years computer fiddling but little of that with networking - more computational and data acquisition. Since I banished Windows so long ago and just use NFS mounts in fstab I didn't think to check network browsing.

Thanks, bassmadrigal and PROBLEMCHYLD.
