gvfs issue with gnome


*correction somepoint after logging in *
my /run/user/1000/gvfs directory 'breaks' (can't think of a better def);

'ls -l /run/user/1000/ | grep gvfs'
ls: cannot access gvfs: Permission denied
d?????????? ? ? ? ? ? gvf

I cannot manipulate the dir directly in anyway and the window manager will lock up when I try to open an X window as the owner of the desktop session.
The only way to resolv is to switch to a seperate tty and to run into single user mode, then back to original run level. Killing everything X related does nothing.
I can also move the parent directory, then gnome will safely crash ahead of time, and restart the session.

The hd has a btrfs although /run is a tmpfs...
running gnome 3
RHEL 7 beta maipo

Two things right off: You're using a BETA version of software (which is to say, one in which problems are still present), and you're using RHEL. Since you're using RHEL, have you contacted Red Hat support for assistance? That's why you pay for support from Red Hat for using RHEL, and especially for beta versions, where they would want to know about bugs/problems. They would have you run a trace, and send them results so the problem could be corrected. Your best bet is to not use beta versions of an OS, or wait until the 'real' version comes out. If this is a new installation, try loading RHEL 6.5 (if you're PAYING for it), or CentOS 6.5 if you're not. As said on this site many times, if you're not paying for RHEL, you need to load CentOS. You WILL NOT get bugfixes/patches/updates/security fixes if you don't pay for RHEL, and problems like the one you're reporting may very well have been fixed...but without a paid subscription to the Red Hat network, you won't GET the fix.
...and one of them is from 2011, and the other still reports as open, with a patch attached to it. Did you apply the patch? Are you running Gnome as root, as one of the posters in that thread said they were?
