So you're saying Rick is wrong - the callbacks are available to root,
but it can't execute them because of noexec or nosuid? I've gotten my
session in a weird state (.gvfs unmounted & I don't know how to
remount), so I can't test it until later. That again seems odd, since
user tburns has no problem executing 'find /users/tburns/.gvfs' but
root cannot do it.

I think I will probably just make a kludgey workaround - pipe error
messages to /dev/null - always fun.

Thanks to all.
