Did you close the first connection before opening the second?
I don't know what thunar would do if you did not do that.
Could you check if both computers somehow got assigned the same ip address?
Could you run
in a terminal and post the output from after you type in your password to see if it is a problem with ssh itself.
Here ye go:

Well, the problem here is not the method of accessing the remote. It is just that by some reason the browsing machine thinks that configured ip belongs to itself.. Is there a some config that is responsible for IPs?
Well I guess the most minimal way of setting up IPs is editing /etc/hosts.
I think you may have a hosts file configuration problem. Nonetheless, can you ssh into the remote machine by typing (without the square brackets):
ssh -l [username of remote account] [ipaddress of remote machine]

on the outside looking in
It's very strange, but today I've managed to work out lan through router. With gftp on ftp I'm getting 5-5.5 MB/s. Yesterday it didn't work I wonder if it stays tommorow
^ Did you reboot?
That could fix ip address issues by renegotiating them with the router.
FWIW, a crossover isn't needed for USB to USB connections.
Ethernet over USB
But who has a type A male to type A male USB cable anymore?
I don't have one, since USB 2.0 everything seems to use type b, mini, or micro heads on one end.
I had some USB 1.0 era ones but they failed years ago.

If you have one it's a good option but most people would probably have to buy one.
Since most people with more than one computer have an existing network for their internet connection it would be cheaper to use the existing network than buying a new cable.
Most modern ethernet cards don't even need a crossover cable anymore anyway.
They are able to handle a direct computer to computer connection internally.
