I guess I should have done it this way?
$ sudo yum remove vlc
$ sudo yum remove rhythmbox 

Or would you have left rhythmbox in place?

Are you saying I should run that yum upate of libmtp with the 
libmtp RPM in the same directory? If so, I can run that now.

Hmmm... good point. Thanks.
I don't even know what gvfs-gphoto2-vo is.
Looking for it, I find:
$ sudo updatedb; locate gvfs-gphoto2-vo
==> /usr/libexec/gvfs-gphoto2-volume-monitor

Hmmm... what is that?
Googling, it's some kind of Gnome filesystem monitor.
Grepping, it's running:
$ ps auxww|grep gvfs-gphoto2-volume-monitor|grep -v grep
==> user1 10465 0.1 0.0 151084 3356 ? S 11:23 0:01 /usr/libexec/gvfs-gphoto2-volume-monitor

OK. I'll kill the process. Is that the same thing?
$ sudo kill -9 10465

Then, I'll unlock the phone & plug it in.
Hmmm.... when I did that, this series of dialogs came up, in sequence:

But now it won't even open the directory. I'm sure we're close, but I'm 
not sure how to debug why it won't open up.
