Hi Jorge,

Today I tried using Rsync for the first time, and ran into the problem
you mentionned.

I enabled hard-proposed to see what was available, but out of 80(!)
updates, I didn't find gvfs-fuse or anything that looked related to
that. Am I missing something ?
I also tried seaching Launchpad, but the search engine is so useless (I
wonder if the malone devs even use it themselves... probalby not ! ;-)
that I may spend my life in there and still not find the work-around
you mention. Could you provide me with a bug number to look at ?
