When mounting a samba share in Files (nautilus) in 13.10 I've noticed that the mount point is now /run/user/1000/gvfs/{name of share}. Under 13.04 the same nautilus share used to mount under /run/user/rod/gvfs/{name of share}.

What was the reason for the change and can it be changed back to using your real name?

According to the changelog this change was not included in Ubuntu but upstream. I looked at the gitlog of gvfs upstream but didn't found the exact commit that made this changes.
