Not helpful to anyone since the fuse libraries have not been compiled
with debugging symbols.  But the problem looks to be fuse-libs related,
and not anything to do with gvfs or GNOME.  You should rebuild
fusefs-libs with debugging symbols, then get a new trace, and send that
to the fusefs-libs maintainer.
