Some months ago I investigated an issue where the GtkFileChooser
requested file info for all shortcuts and caused mass login requests for
all bookmarked remote locations on startup that require login with the
GnomeVFS backend.

I think the issue was that the file chooser has no way of requesting
file info, but signalling at the same time that failure due to
unavailability of resources or access constraints isn't fatal, allowing
the GnomeVFS backend to not request login data when it is invoked
through gtkfilechooserdefault.c:shortcuts_reload_icons. In that case, we
may want to fall back to a folder icon.

>From reading the GTK+ HEAD source code, the shortcut code still doesn't
seem to pass any special flags, so it still seems to be relevant.
