gnome-vfs daemon, GPL and LGPL

Hi list,

I've noticed that the gnome-vfs2 source package includes some GPL source
files. These are the sources of gnome-vfs-daemon. As I understand it,
the daemon is not essential for the gnome-vfs functionality, but it is
spawned when some operations are requested.

To what level do you think this makes the dependent applications become
subject to the GPL? Is a non-GPL-compatible application making use of
gnome-vfs violating the license?
