Are you talking about the stuff in file-module.c (do_get_local)? That is
ultimately called by things like gnome_vfs_uri_is_local(), for example.
That test looks hosed because it thinks an NFS-mounted (and AFS) system
is not local (so /home on all the boxes I use at work is apparently as
"remote" as a WebDAV or FTP site). 

This looks like it could wander into the same territory as the is_local
flags in Nautilus which are sort of doubling (er .. tripling) as
"is_fast", "is_possibly_going_to_be_missing" and
"is_on_the_hard_drive_in_the_box_at_my_feet" and possibly some other
purposes; I never quite wrapped my brain around all the uses and why
they were required. Whatever the reasons are, and I am note questioning
their legitimatacy, it leads to some non-intuitive (a.k.a really
annoying) behaviour at times.
