I usually combine the use of the shell and the xfce gui in some way. Namely I start writing on some file stored in some folder, while having the same folder open in the gui in order to quickly open related files when I need some information. Now It appears as xfce can not handle this, since the "gui folder" simply stops reacting after I executed some program or worked on some file from the shell.

Happy to hear any information related to that behaviour and even more, if someone could provide me with a solution Best regards
