Description Marcel 2009-10-14 10:26:51 EDT
Description of problem:

After login the users home directory is no longer accessible by konqueror and krusader and other programs.
On the bash shell it's possible to use "ls" but "ls -a" causes the command to not respond.
The problem seems to occur after login to KDE (gnome seems fine but I still need to verify this).
The problem did not seem to exist yesterday although I did a fresh install yesterday and had not much time to play around with it yet.
User directories can not be deleted (not even by root account). It seems to be due to invalid permissions of .gvfs in the home users directory.

I'm not sure if it's a kdebase problem since I have a hard time finding the real root cause.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Current fedora 11 updated with yum (today)

How reproducible:

Always. Create a fresh account, log into KDE and try to access home directory

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a fresh account
2. Log into KDE
3. Try to access the user hoem directory using konqueror (or try "ls -a").
Actual results:

Expected results:

Just verified, it happens regardless of logging into KDE or Gnome.
This is quite severe as currently I can't use the system at all.

I'm trying further but it's clear that some files get created in the home directory which even the root account can not remove from the system.

Maybe the gvfs folks can offer advice.

Root is powerless with these restricted fuse mounts. See bug 493565 for details and related duplicates for tips how to temporarily solve your issue.
