  c) Click "Create"

2) Open a Thunar window to ~/Documents

3) Open a second Thunar window to the home directory

4) Right-click+drag the "abc.tar.gz" from the Documents window to the
home directory window, and click "Extract here".

Expected results:
There should be a folder "abc" in the home directory, containing the extracted 
contents of the archive.

Actual results:
The "abc" folder is in ~/Documents.

Some investigation shows that Thunar is running this command -

engrampa --extract-to=/home/xubuntu --extract-here --force

Running it manually in Terminal produces the same result.
