Package: gvfs
Version: 1.10.1-2

Often, when I try to watch a movie with Totem, gvfs segfault. Here is
the line displayed in 'dmesg'. Notice, I can't find a way yet to
reproduce the problem. It often happen after the mount point is
connected for a while. e.g. (I play a movie for 40min, when I start
playing the second movie, I get the segfault)

gvfsd-sftp[2935]: segfault at 28 ip 00007f2dc66e3194 sp
00007ffff8c51a10 error 4 in libgvfsdaemon.so[7f2dc66d1000+25000]

Step to reproduce :
1. Open a sftp share using Nautilus : ssh://my.server.com
2. Browse to the location of a movie (.avi files)
3. Double-click on it to open the fiel with the default application
(In my case Totem)

Expected behavior :
4. The movie start playing in Totem
Current behavior :
5. Totem display the following error message :
An error occured
Could not perform seek on resource
6. The mount point is no longer mounted

I am using Debian GNU/Linux 3.2.1, kernel 3.1.0-1-amd64
