Well, if you don't have gvfs installed then you will not be able to
either look up the uri handler for the http uri scheme in gconf, nor
will you be able to query_info for the mime type of the file on the http
server. It should not grind to a halt though, can you explain in more
detail what happens?

For the gnome_url_show() case this calls the old gnome_vfs_url_show()
which reads the http scheme default from gconf. This is the same
behaviour as gtk_show_url would have if you had gvfs installed with
gconf support.
