"gvfs-fuse-daemon" processes hang around after logout

Is it normal for gvfs-fuse-daemon to stay running after a user has
completely logged out of the system?  I'm not clear on what function
these processes are providing in the new Gnome infrastructure.  Seems
they are continuing to run until manually killed, and sometimes will
have multiple instances running at the same time.  Attaching the
running process with gdb always seems to give the same backtrace info:

(gdb) bt
#0  0x104593d1 in read () from /lib/libc.so.7
#1  0x10375792 in read () from /lib/libthr.so.3
#2  0x10357591 in fuse_kern_chan_receive () from /usr/local/lib/libfuse.so.2
#3  0x1035b55d in fuse_chan_recv () from /usr/local/lib/libfuse.so.2
#4  0x103579d5 in fuse_do_work () from /usr/local/lib/libfuse.so.2
#5  0x10376b1f in pthread_getprio () from /lib/libthr.so.3
#6  0x00000000 in ?? ()

Not seemingly very helpful to my untrained eye.
