gvfsd-gphoto2[11838]: segfault at 10 ip 0000003623808a4a sp 00007fff615f5930 error 4 in libpthread-2.9.so[3623800000+17000]

n.b. I now know that after gvfs fails a leaves behind an icon and I do
not anymore see the mounted camera in ~/.gvfs/gphoto2... but the browser
pops up and allows access to the camera.

I need to logoff X then login and all is back to normal.
