Where did ~/.gvfs go on Ubuntu 12.10. How can I find the location of the mounted through samba folders?

I share a folder with a Ubuntu 12.10 machine. I am trying to find the location of the mount point on another Ubuntu 12.10 machine that I've mounted it. It is mounted successfully. It is on the nautilus sidebar. But I can not find the location as on 12.04 which was ~/.gvfs/blabla to use the folder in an app.

It's changed to /run/user/$USER/gvfs, where $USER is your_username.

It may also be at: /run/user/$(id -u)/gvfs, where id -u is the effective user ID.

Example: /run/user/1000/gvfs.
