FUSE and fsvs

Message I stopped using fsvs back in the days of 1.1.12 or so because one of the
systems on which I was using it acquired a .gvfs FUSE mount point in
user home directories. The semantics of this prevents root from
traversing the mount point, so attempting to use fsvs as root on home
directories gives you something like:

An error occurred: Permission denied (13)
 in dir__enumerator: lstat(.gvfs)

This is despite every permutation of "ignore" I can think of:

./*/.gvfs/
./**~
./**.tmp
./**.bak
./**.gvfs
./**/.gvfs
./mjh/.gvfs
./*/.gvfs/

So I've tried again with 1.1.17, and the problem still persists.
Looking at the code, the lstat in question will always cause a stop on
permission denied.
I was wondering if anyone has a neat workaround for this problem?
