In my Hardy 'System Monitor' --> 'File Systems' there is the listing:

Device: gvfs-fuse-daemon
Directory: /home/xx/.gvfs
Type: fuse.gvfs-fuse-daemon

The other columns regarding size are the same as the / Directory which is also listed.
In the /home/xx/ directory is the .gvfs directory which is empty.

What is this? I don't have it in either Gutsy or Feisty.
Any ideas?

It is a new feature, gnome-vfs (AKA gvfs)

http://library.gnome.org/devel/gnome-vfs-2.0/stable/

https://wiki.ubuntu.com/GvfsInHardy

Basically it integrates various filesystems with gnome, for example if you mount samba or nfs shares via Places -> Network the share will be mounted in ~/.gvfs

Thanks for that. Interesting.
And thanks also for some of your other great work here which has saved me on more then one occasion, especially your How to Fstab.
Thanks again.
