This happened to me too, I think just after I started up Rhythmbox on my
16.04 desktop. I don't use Windows shares. It's pretty annoying.

gvfsd-smb: very high CPU utilisation
Status in gvfs package in Ubuntu:
Status in samba package in Ubuntu:
Status in samba package in Fedora:
I use Virtualbox and mount a .vdi on an SMB server. Using gvfsd-smb
(browsing within Gnome to find the share), gvfsd-smb uses up to 50%
CPU which slows down the entire system when accessing the network
share. Mounting using sudo ($ sudo mount -t smbfs -o
guest,nounix,noperm //server/share /media/share) so that cifs is used
uses around 8% CPU. The difference is dramatic!
If I didn't have sudo access my machine would grind to a halt when
trying to use the remote share.
