I think this bug is reported here:
http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=346676

The problem is that gnome-vfs takes the uid of a file directly from the
server. The patch changes the behaviour so that every file has uid of
the current user. Better approach would to first check if we really have
permissions to the file and if so, change the uid.

I wrote a small patch based on the patch reported on the above bug and
old code taken from the gnome-vfs's CVS repository . The patch fixed
this issue, atleast for me. However the patch may have other problems.
