Description of problem:
Using rsnapshot to do incremental backups which under the covers uses rsync is
being tripped up by the .gvfs mount in home causing problems with backup.
Subject: Cron <root@localhost> /usr/bin/rsnapshot hourly
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=UTF-8
rsync: readlink "/home/dmobrien/.gvfs" failed: Permission denied (13)
IO error encountered -- skipping file deletion
rsync error: some files could not be transferred (code 23) at main.c(1031) [send
Did the copy complete?
So, it's not going to delete files out of the backup that have disappeared from
the copy from dir?
.gvfs more trouble than its worth?

Steps to Reproduce:
Reassigning to rsnapshot, rsync is a mere tool here and does what it is told to.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 9 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 9. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '9'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 9's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 9 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
Fedora 9 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-07-10. Fedora 9 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
An explanation of the issue:
The issue is the same in Fedora 11, so this can be reopened.
The issue is the same in Fedora 13. Someone please bump the version and reopen.
