When the reboot fixed this, the problem is the ".gvfs" virtual
filesystem - the reboot got rid of it (I guess it will be automatically
mounted again when you do something with you bookmarks). This virtual
filesystem can not even be accessed as root, that's why you get the
error above.

Add --exclude-other-filesystems to the command line to skip those
virtual filesystems, the contents are not meant to be backed up, anyway.
