To reproduce it easily:
| fakeroot gst-inspect-0.10 --print-plugin-auto-install-info debian/gstreamer0.10-gnomevfs/usr/lib/gstreamer-0.10/libgstgnomevfs.so

It looks like libgnomevfs2 dropped (apparently silently, maybe not on
purpose?) the patch added in 1:2.18.1-4: 24_gnome_vfs_home_dir is no
longer in the series file.

That would explain why stracing the fakeroot call with an appropriate
GNOME_VFS_HOME variable set leads to an invariable /root/.gnome2 access
attempt, and would explain the initialization problem, due to
gnome_vfs_init() failing.

I'm currently building a new package with the patch added back in, to
see whether that indeed fixes the problem. I'll be cloning, reassigning
et al. if that works.
