Description Martin Langhoff 2013-08-26 17:38:33 EDT
Description of problem:

A laggy F19 desktop since I started using a Western Digital "MyBookLive" NAS in my home network. The NAS is mounted over NFS on this F19 box. However, gfvsd-afp-browse is spinning wild, as can be seen in:

$ ps ax | grep gvfsd
 1624 ?        Sl     0:00 /usr/libexec/gvfsd
 1629 ?        Sl     0:00 /usr/libexec//gvfsd-fuse -f /run/user/500/gvfs
 2069 ?        Sl     0:00 /usr/libexec/gvfsd-burn --spawner :1.3 /org/gtk/gvfs/exec_spaw/0

18734 ?        Sl     0:00 /usr/libexec/gvfsd-http --spawner :1.3 /org/gtk/gvfs/exec_spaw/2

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

 gvfs-afp.x86_64 0:1.16.3-2.fc19  

How reproducible:

Seems to repro 100% here. 

I have removed the package for now, I will be happy to reinstall and debug if I can get some pointers of what to look for.

There are macs in this network that make good use of the AFP service (Time Machine, cute). Switching AFP off at the NAS is not an option.

FWIW: very similar bug report on Ubuntu -https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/gvfs/+bug/951585

This is still happening in Fedora 20, I marked #1001320 as a duplicate after further investigation. Having tested the various different mounts I was using, turns out my nautilus issues were actually wholly gvfsd-afp issues. In my case the NAS is a Buffalo Linkstation, but the result is the same. The same NAS offers a samba share which works fine, they afp share is unusable and crashes the file browser.
