baobab should be aware of ecryptfs private directories

Bug Description

Binary package hint: gnome-utils

When using private directories, Baobab creates separate entries for the true filesystem (in ~/.Private) and the virtual filesystem (in ~/Private). The problem is more visible with a large ratio of files in private compared to out of it. At the least, one of these directories should be hidden.

I can confirm this issue, but only when you scan `/`.

 When you scan `/home/<user>/` it works as one would expect.

It's hard to tell if this is "working as intended" since the `/home/<user>/` option works, and the `/` scans as if the home folder weren't mounted with encryptfs.

While it may confuse newer users, perhaps adding a prompt that says, "Hey, I see you're using encryptfs. Want me to treat your filesystem the way it is, or the way encryptyfs is trying to present it?" instead of having this inconsistency may help.
