Description: FUSE is a powerful facility that allows users to
 create userspace file systems. It can be used for applications
 ranging from digital cameras through online photo-sharing to
 compatibility with Microsoft Windows file systems.
 By default, only the first user is allowed to work with
 fuse-based file systems. To grant access to other users,
 add them to the 'fuse' group.

This ticket is tagged gutsy2hardy, an upgrade path that is no longer supported. Is there still anything left that needs to be done in a later release?
