Thunar shows all fstab entries in devices in the Shortcuts Side Pane

Dear XFCE developers,
Thunar run with root privileges shows all fstab entries in devices in the Shortcuts Side Pane. This is reproducible at least with Thunar 1.6.11 (on my main system - Debian Stretch) and with Thunar 1.8.2 (on my VM system - Debian Stretch + Thunar and its dependences from Sid/Stretch Backports). Specifically, I currently have the following in DEVICES in the Shortcuts Side Pane (when no USB, network or other devices are connected):
File System (this is ok -> non-root Thunar shows only this entry) Filesystem root (this is LVM for "/" and it is redundant) boot (this is partition for "/boot" and it is redundant)
When I had a separate LVM for "/home" it was shown also as "home" in root Thunar DEVICES. This behavior started with the update of libglib2.0-0 when I upgraded from version 2.42.1-1 (Debian Jessie) to later versions in Debian Stretch (currently 2.50.3-2) and also in Debian Sid (currently 2.58.1-2). Before the update from libglib2.0-0 2.42.1-1 both root and non-root Thunar showed just the "File System" entry in DEVICES in the Shortcuts Side Pane.
At first I reported this problem a while ago as a Debian bug, but probably most relevant is the info in libglib2 GNOME bug (https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/glib/issues/1271).
