This could be part of the problem. If I recall correctly, older gthumb

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.
