No, that's not it.  The environment of gvfsd doesn't have much in it.

These settings come from things like gdm, dbus and gnome-session, which
all run early in the life of the desktop session.

Since it's possible to use an environment variable to have gvfsd not
start gvfs-fuse-daemon it would be useful to have some way to inject
that variable into gvfsd's environment.

The gnome-session README says of GSM_SESSION_PHASE_INITIALIZATION:

   Apps in this phase can make use of a D-Bus interface
   (org.gnome.SessionManager.Setenv) to set environment variables
   in gnome-session's environment. This can be used for things like
   $GTK_MODULES, $GNOME_KEYRING_SOCKET, etc

This is presumably how GNOME_KEYRING_SOCKET got into gvfsd's environment.
So is there a simple way to persuade gnome-session to set an environment
variable?  Or gdm, or dbus?
