I already have that package installed.

    $ sudo apt-get install gvfs-fuse
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree       
    Reading state information... Done
    gvfs-fuse is already the newest version.

    ~$ cat /etc/issue
    Ubuntu 8.10 \n \l

This looks odd:

$ ls -ls .gvfs/
ls: cannot access .gvfs/WebDAV on Input/output error
total 0
? ?????????? ? ? ? ?                ? WebDAV on
