Thunar hangs on start (worked briefly before)

I asked about a non-geek-friendly filemanager for my S.O. and a couple
folks recommended Thunar. I installed it, and got the requisite hald and
dbus running. After a few tries I got it to come up -- very nice,
easy to use, found the USB drive we attached... good stuff.
Later I tried again, and it started to come up, put a File Manager
window on the screen but never populated it -- just 2 white blocks on
a gray background.
I've since cvsupped to 6.2-STABLE, made sure my ports were up to date,
blah blah, and see the same thing. Top and ps show:
1010 chris 3 20 0 31056K 11076K kserel 0:01 0.00% Thunar
chris at Bacalao:~<123> ps -auxlwww | grep thun
chris 1010 0.0 2.2 31056 11076 p1 S+ 12:00PM 0:00.65 thunar (Thunar) 1001 1005 0 20 0 kserel
Oddly, I can't ^C or ^Z it to kill and background. Even a kill -9 on
its PID doesn't kill it, even with sudo:
chris at Bacalao:~<126> ps -auxlwww | grep thun
chris 1010 0.0 2.2 31056 11068 p1 T+ 12:00PM 0:00.65 thunar (Thunar) 1001 1005 0 96 0 -
After killing it, I can try and start up a new thunar but it does the
same thing: gray background with white blocks.
Any ideas how I can track down the problem here?
