    If you run pure KDE it won't be there. Only Gnome uses it it may be some gnome program has pulled it in which I have no idea what you run.

    maybe disable it

    Try this command:
    sudo chmod -x /usr/lib/gvfs/gvfsd-metadata

    It should disable gvfsd-metadata - the "-x" is making gvfsd-metadata non executable. Since i'm not sure of the side effects it might have on the system, if you want to reverse the command, just do:

    sudo chmod +x /usr/lib/gvfs/gvfsd-metadata
    Note that some program may throw errors when you start it. That is the one causing you your problem
