Resurrecting this from the email vaults because the bug popped back
up.  I am running 0.11rc5.

I'm getting:

WARNING: Exception thrown: CommonException(OSFileError) at BackupQueries.cpp(1592)
Exception: Common OSFileError (Error accessing a file. Check permissions.) (1/9)

As a reminder, the problem occurs when there is a .gvfs mounted.  I
have a line in the conf to exclude .gvfs dirs, but it seems to stat
the directory before it checks the exclude rules.  As another
annoyance, that error message would be way more useful if it included
the filename that caused it to blow up.  To debug this I straced the
run with some flags to pare down the result to remove some syscall
types so the output was less huge.

This was your last changeset related to this bug:
