no mounts in ~/.gvfs anymore for SFTP


I'm on the Debian "testing" distro. I use GVFS to access files from another Debian machine via SSH (i.e., the "sftp" protocol).

Unfortunately, after some update, GVFS stopped exposing the SFTP mount in ~/.gvfs, while I can still copy files using nautilus (but I prefer direct access like before).

"gvfs-fuse" is installed. I tried the "testing" version (1.2.3-3) of the "gvfs" packages as well as the "unstable" ones (1.4.1-2), with the same result.

Is this a bug or do I just miss something?


files, gvfs
