Gigolo doesn't manage permissions by itself at all. It just uses
Gio/Gvfs for that.

Can you check consolekit is installed and configured correctly? 
Assuming you're using Xfce, can you check README.Debian
in /usr/share/doc/xfce4-session and report back?

Can you describe your setup a bit more (what environment you use, how do
you start it, etc.)?
