What is gnome-vfs-daemon and why does it eat memory?

The process gnome-vfs-daemon is using >300Mb of RAM on my system (per gnome-system-monitor). I've been googling for a while and I know its a file system abstraction layer, but I'd like to know if its normal for this process to use this much memory. Anyone have anything to offer here? I'm running FC2 for what its worth.

Could be a memory leak or bug.. Have you tried restarting it or sending a HUP to it? If its causing poor performance, I'd say just kill it off.
