Ok, this was a bit of tricky one.
Apparently there is some confusion over fuse's role in the GIO/GVFS env.
GIO doesn't need fuse to mount dirrectories as such - fuse handles that
all on its own.
GIO uses fuse to create a mountpoint that non GIO/GVFS apps can use to
access a remote location like sshfs, webdav, smb, etc. So when you login
to a remote location GIO uses dbus to provide access to GVFS aware apps,
and it also calls gvfsd-fuse (not gvfs-fuse-daemon - another point of
confusion both on the web and in the man pages) to create a mountpoint
and allow the other apps to access it over the dbus as well.
Clear as mud? :)
HTH someone else...
