% mount|grep gvfs
gvfs-fuse-daemon on /home/poc/.gvfs type fuse.gvfs-fuse-daemon (rw,nosuid,nodev,user=poc)

IOW .gvfs is a mount point for the FUSE user-space filesystem daemon, so
I guess permissions are being handled by FUSE. This is something Gnome
apparently uses for something or other (I've no idea as I use KDE).

You might try the -mount (or -xdev) options to 'find', but that will
also restrict you from crossing into other mounted filesystems.

(Does anyone else think .gvfs is a PITA?)
