Ever since I updated nautilus, thus pulling in gvfs as a dependency, a
lot of RPM transactions outputs this error:

error: failed to stat /home/michel/.gvfs: Permission denied

Anyone knows what's causing this?

You can't write to it as your own user right now.

Considering it created ~/.gvfs on its own, this sounds like a bug.

And indeed, if I kill the gvfs daemon, the permission is then 700, but
once the daemon respawns it goes back to 555.


Ah, that I'm not sure about, although the daemon appears to be running on my machine with the perms 700 still. Whether it is intended to change them I don't know, but it sounds unlikely that not being able to write to it would be intentional unless some ACL trickery is supposed to be going on.
