Older versions of Thunar did not support the smb protocol.  I don't know if 
this has been added.  From your frustration, I assume not.  xubuntu installs 
nautilus for that.  Again, in older version where I am familiar, this 
generally converted your xfce session into a gnome session.

Personally, I never saw the point of xubuntu as you had to load gnome stuff to 
do any work.  Then, instead of a lightweight wm/environment, you had 
gnome+xfce instead of just gnome when using vanilla ubuntu.  Alsio, if running 
a lightweight desktop is your goal install ubuntu server and then install e17 
as your x wm.
