[Tfug] Bizarre permissions problem

I'm upgrading laptops and moved /home/jim to the new machine.
I now have a situation where /home/jim/.gvfs is owned by "jim" but with
access rights only - and root user has no permissions.
So in trying to make sure I own all of /home/jim, a command like:
jim at critter:/home$ sudo chown -R jim /home/jim
chown: cannot access `/home/jim/.gvfs': Permission denied
If I look at permissions for that directory in Nautilus, I see that I have
read-only access. If I do "sudo nautilus" to look at the situation as root,
I can't even see /home/jim/.gvfs
And that apparently is blocking me from resetting permissions on my home
directory on a global, recursive basis.
How do I gain back write-access to .gvfs?
