The gvfs is a virutal file system. Gnome will use it to give non-gnome
applications access to files that are remote (network shares, ftp, sftp,
etc... any files that nautilus can see but aren't mounted as a
filesystem should be shoehorned into gvfs) I'm not too sure why gnome
copies the root filesystem properties for spaced used/free, but that
seems to be the case for several examples I've seen.

Only /dev/sda1 is a filesystem on your disk, the others (except
/dev/scd0) are virtual file systems. The 1026388 sized ones are some
kinbd of RAM disks, gvfs-fuse-daemon is used by GNOME to access files
on FTP servers etc. (open an ftp://-URL in nautilus an have a look at
/home/csv610/.gvfs).

In the analyser: Edit|Preferences| and 'un-tick' gvs-fuse-daemon
I think this should have been the default and don't know why it is not.
