When I do gnomevfs-ls ftp://ftp.gnome.org/debian it ends
with segmentation fault. 'debian' is a symbolic link to directory.
gvfs is ok in this case, but some application still use gnome-vfs :(
I've found piece of code for this:
After patch there is no seg fault anymore.
Could you add this patch to main portage? tnx.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. gnomevfs-ls ftp://ftp.gnome.org/debian
Created attachment 223761 [details, diff]
patch for ftp symlink issue
gnome-vfs is deprecated, apparently for command line this should be used instead these days:
or just opening nautilus ftp://ftp.gnome.org/debian or something for graphical thing.
That said, I think we could/should still review and include the patch for gnome-vfs
Should upstream be contacted for incorporating the fix or is gnome-vfs development completely finalized?

Consider it dead. You can always try, but they'll probably laugh at us :)
