Custom actions without an icon could cause the file manager to crash


Description Andrea M. 2018-06-18 23:16:07 CEST
Thunar crashes if I open the context menu of a file that has a custom action without icon, if this action is the first (of that type of file) thunar crashes when I select the file. 
If a custom action for directories hasn't an icon thunar crashes at startup.

E.g With my uca.xml when I select an image thunar will crash, if I add at the top a custom action for images with an icon thunar will crash if I open the context menu.

Steps to reproduce:
Add a custom action without icons, use the pattern that you like.
Click on a file that matches the pattern or open the context menu.

I was able to reproduce more than 30 times the issue if the action without an icon is the first, but only few times when the action without icon is not the first. Perhaps the latter are false positives.

Sorry for my bad english. Sorry for the confusion, I'm new on bugzilla
