Bug Description

[ Decscription ]

gvfsd-photo2 crashes with a segfault because a mutex is freed twice

This is currently #6 on errors.ubuntu.com:


[ Test case ]

I don't have a clear reproducer; see that the crash dropps off on errors with the SRUed version.

[ Regression Potential ]

Check that gvfs works correctly, and that no crashes appear on errors.ubuntu.com

I clicked on update manager and it craps out.
