Bug Description

if I try and scan any files and folders it reports that:

 Couldn't scan <my file or folder> lstat() failed: Permission denied

even if I try and scan stuff in my home folder or usb device.

That's odd, I've not seen that error ever. If I remove all read permissions from a file, I get "Couldn't scan /path/to/foo (Access denied).", but not the "lstat() failed: Permission denied".

One thread I've read about this error ( ) suggests that it could be related to SELinux - do you use that?

I think this might be another symptom of Bug #708395.
