[xmonad] Strange Thunar CPU idling phenomenon

I'm using XFCE's filemanager Thunar and am witnessing something strange
when using xmonad. I would like to know if this is a problem with
xmonad, or with my system. So if anyone uses Thunar could you please
check if this happens?
I tried this with my own config, but it happens with no config (=default
one) as well.
Steps to reproduce:
1. Start xmonad.
2. Start Thunar.
3. Move Thunar to a different workspace.
4. Observe Thunar's idling CPU state in htop or similar.
On my PC it is now idling at 3-7%.
5. Switch to workspace where Thunar now is and change Thunar to a
6. Check CPU idling again. It is now 0% as expected.
Strange thing is that just focusing Thunar on the second workspace isn't
enough; you have to change the directory. I have no idea what causes
this strange behavior. I tried other (tiling) window managers and they
all start idling Thunar at 0% as expected.
Anybody have an insight?
