Connect to Server... from Mate-panel in vnc session Not!

I am running Ubuntu Mate 14.04 LTS (both 32 and 64 bit). When I access either machine using vnc4server with the following .vnc/xstartup file


# Uncomment the following two lines for normal desktop:
# exec /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc
[ -x /etc/vnc/xstartup ] && exec /etc/vnc/xstartup
[ -r $HOME/.Xresources ] && xrdb $HOME/.Xresources
xsetroot -solid grey
vncconfig -iconic &
# x-terminal-emulator -geometry 80x24+10+10 -ls -title "$VNCDESKTOP Desktop" &
# x-window-manager &
mate-session &
mate-panel &
and I then attempt to launch Places; Connect to Server... I get the following error message:
Can't load the supported server method list.
Please check your GVfs installation.
If I access either machine from its physical console I can connect to a server as expected.

I would also state that if in the vnc session I open a Place first (e.g. Home Folder) I CAN connect to a sever from within the caja window. This makes me think that the issue is either with the vnc session or with the mate-panel as invoked by vnc.

I have reported this as a possible mate-panel issue. However, since it only happens in the vnc session I am not sure. I have reinstalled gvfs-backends while in the vnc session as this was a recommendation for fixing the issue in other situations. No improvement. Any suggestions?
