lxde (file manager) hangs when trying to run "Tor Browser Setup"?

We have a report from a user on #tor who extracted Tor Browser 5.5.4 with "xarchiver", and then found the "Tor Browser Setup" in their file manager, and when they click-clicked it, they just waited forever.

Whereas this person went into the Browser/ directory and click-clicked on "Tor Browser Setup" from there and the usual connect/configure window popped up.

I tried doing this just now from xfce's file manager and it worked. Is this a bug with "lxde"'s file manager? Was it user error? Is there something wrong with the start-tor-browser.desktop file, which could be improved?

The user was on Debian Jessie.

If somebody wants to make a debian image and apt-get install lxde and try this out, that would be grand.
