This could be part of the problem. If I recall correctly, older gthumb
version where using gphoto directly, and not through the gfvs backend.
When you plugin the camera, the gvfs backend would mount the camera
automatically. But then gthumb couldn't access the camera through gphoto
anymore because the device was already claimed by gvfs. To make the
gthumb importer work again, when you choose "import with gthumb" in the
popup, the gvfs mount was first unmounted before gthumb was started.
Maybe you still have a system with the unmount first behavior? Not sure
when that was replaced, but I still always click no in the popup window
and start gthumb manually.
With older gthumb, you don't have to mount camera in nautilus. Otherwise
gthum can't use gphoto directly, since the gvfs backend has claimed the

through gvfs backend.
For the moment, I have a "simple" issue ; my camera isn't auto mounted
by gvfs backend (gvfs-gphoto2-volume-monitor). So I have to mount manu
