Until this is properly fixed in GStreamer, I have written a patch for
gstreamer0.10 that adds a specific case for libgstgnomevfs. It's ugly
but simple, and I have checked it fixes the issue for whatever gnome-vfs
module you could imagine.

I have checked, and it would bring back the whole Kerberos stack in
libgnomevfs2-0's dependencies. I'd like to avoid that, as it would
completely defeat libgnomevfs2-extra's point.
